Trend News Agency January 27, 2016 By Aygun Badalova http://en.trend.az/business/energy/2486185.html The Trans Anatolian gas pipeline (TANAP) and the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), being realized within the Southern Gas Corridor project, aimed at the the transportation of the Caspian gas to Europe, provide a better alternative than Russia’s Turkish Stream project, Ariel Cohen, Nonresident Senior Research Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center and Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center believes. “These projects comply with the requirements, as well as the intent, of the EU’s Third Energy Package. This fact would give them a serious advantage over the Turkish Stream, if it were realistic today,” Cohen, who is also a director of the Center for Energy, Natural Resources, and Geopolitics at the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security, said in a report. The negotiations between Russia and Turkey on the Turkish Stream project have been stopped following the deterioration of the relations between the countries in November, 2015.
