Turkey's energy minister and Russia's Gazprom chief took a helicopter ride over the Black Sea to survey a possible route of the "Turkish Stream" pipeline Saturday.Russian President Vladimir Putin offered a new gas pipeline route via the Black Sea to reach Turkey's northwestern Thrace region, dubbed the Turkish Stream, which would also involve a gas hub at the Turkish-Greek border to transfer gas further into Europe.Miller told the Anadolu Agency in an exclusive interview that the possible entry point of the pipeline on Turkish land could be Kiyikoy, a small village in northwestern Turkey on the Black Sea coast. He added that the pipeline would go through Luleburgaz and end up at Ipsala, a town at the Turkish-Greek border.Miller said that the first phase of the project would provide around 16 billion cubic meters of natural gas for Turkey's own consumption. In the next step, the pipeline would bring 47 billion cubic meters of gas to Turkish-Greek border, he said.
