Turkish Stream route: After taking a helicopter ride yesterday,  Gazprom’s chief Alexei Miller and Turkey’s Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Taner Yildiz announced that they had tentatively agreed the route for the Turkish Stream gas pipeline. It has been determined that the 180km pipeline would run from Kiyikey, 155km up Turkey’s Black Sea coast from Istanbul, to Ipsala, close to Turkey’s border with Greece. During talks, Turkey also increased its estimated gas requirements from 14 to 16 bn m³. Interfax
