Europe will have to care about delivering Russian gas from Turkish border - Gazprom CEO Miller
MOSCOW. Dec 6 (Interfax) - After the closure of the South Stream gas pipeline project, European companies should care themselves about the delivery of Russian gas from the Turkish border to the end consumer in line with the Third Energy Package, Gazprom CEO Alexei Miller said in an interview in a Saturday analytical program on the Rossiya-1 television channel hosted by Sergei Brilyov.
"The principle of our strategy in relation to the European market is changing. The decision on stopping South Stream is the beginning of an end of our operation model on the market, within which we oriented ourselves toward supplying [gas] to the end consumer on the European market," Miller said.
"But you can't win love by force. If the buyer doesn't want the purchase to be delivered home, well, then perhaps he needs to get dressed and go to the store, and if it happens in winter, get dressed warmer. Well, he could also take some package, of course, which can well be the Third Energy Package, but what counts most is that it should not be empty. In our case, the store is certainly the delivery point" on the Turkish-Greek border, Miller said.
The Third Energy Package does not apply to Gazprom's new project instead of South Stream, i.e. a gas pipeline across the Black Sea to Turkey and further to the border with the EU (Greece), he said.
