Turkey is in negotiations to discuss the development of one of the world’s largest gas pipeline projects, which will carry Qatari gas to the Mediterranean Sea.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the third World Future Energy Summit that the project was part of his country’s strategic plan to secure energy for the future.
“The most important project is the Qatar – Turkey natural gas pipeline that we are working on, and it will be implemented soon. We highly believe that besides its economic value, this project will be very important for all countries in the region,” said Mr Erdogan.
The Qatar – Turkey pipeline will cross Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria and may link to the proposed Nabucco Gas Pipeline.
