In Baku, Azerbaijan, EU representatives signed a major agreement on a natural gas project. It includes the Shah Deniz gas field as well as two pipelines, all intended to help Europe wean itself of Russian natural gas.
Turkey and Azerbaijan have inaugurated the TANAP pipeline that will bring gas to Europe while bypassing Russia. The project has won political support from both the United States and European Union.
Russian gas giant Gazprom's long-term contracts with Kyiv to transit its product via Ukraine to the EU expire next year and the supplier of 34 percent of Europe's gas is looking for new ways to feed its main market.
