Oil prices this morning are held in the “red” zone. Investors started to worry about the approaching June meeting of OPEC in Vienna (22.06-23.06).

Last Tuesday, Turkey was solemnly opened the TANAP pipeline, which is designed to supply gas from Azerbaijan to Europe. However, gas supplies to the European Union will begin no earlier than 2019. By this time the Russian will be implemented the project “Turkish stream”, through which it is also planned to supply gas to European consumers and Turkey.
Unlike TANAP capacity of the Turkish stream will be limited in the amount of both lines will allow transporting of 31.5 billion cubic meters of gas, respectively, the European market, Russia can offer only 15.75 billion cubic meters while via TANAP at the initial stage will be 10 billion cubic meters of gas by 2023, the capacity is planned to increase to 23 billion cubic meters, and by 2026 – to 31 billion cubic meters. This will be possible due to the commissioning of the remaining parts of the southern gas corridor. Thus, the competition for the European gas market increases.
Interestingly, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko also expressed interest in new gas pipeline TANAP. But do not forget that the presence of two gas pipelines in Turkey, Russian and Azerbaijan will lead to the fact that gas supplies through the Ukrainian gas transportation system will begin to decrease, and therefore, Ukraine will lose transit.
