Nabucco Pipeline, Has it Been Checked or Checkmated…

Sign The Deal...

I saw this and smiled today. I was wondering if Medvedev was going to do, what I thought he was going to do and he did…

Azerbaijan is going to sell all its gas to Russia’s Gazprom.The picture above is President Dmitry Medvedev and his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilkham Aliyev signing the contract…

Under an agreement reached during talks in Baku between Presidents Dmitry Medvedev and Ilkham Aliyev, 2 billion cubic meters will be pumped to Russia next year and over 2 billion in 2012.

Analysts say the decision will become a serious blow to the Nabucco gas pipeline, which is designed to transport Caspian gas into Europe bypassing Russia.

According to the General Director of the Energy Security Foundation Konstantin Simonov, the Nabucco pipe cannot be filled without gas from Azerbaijan.
