Securing Europe's Energy Supply

The South Stream Offshore Pipeline through the Black Sea aims to secure Europe’s energy supply in a reliable and sustainable way.

Energising Europe

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

Environmental and Social Responsibility

South Stream Transport is committed to developing the pipeline Project in an environmentally and socially responsible manner, in accordance with national, international, and EU legislation.

The offshore section will stretch approximately 931 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 2,200 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.
