The South Stream Offshore Pipeline will deliver up to 63 billion cubic metres of natural gas. Enough energy for 38 million European households.

About the Project
South Stream Offshore Pipeline System
The South Stream Offshore Pipeline is the offshore part of the South Stream Pipeline System which will increase the direct supply of natural gas from Russia to Central and South-Eastern Europe. The on- and offshore sections span more than 2,300 km in total.
South Stream Offshore by Numbers
The offshore section will stretch approximately 930 km through the Black Sea from Anapa in Russia to Varna in Bulgaria.
Four pipeline ‘strings’ – or parallel branches – will run along the Black Sea bed reaching a maximum depth of 2,250 m.
Each pipeline string will supply 15.75 billion cubic metres of natural gas per year.
When fully operational, the South Stream Offshore Pipeline will deliver up to 63 bcm of natural gas per year to Europe.
