This concludes the final stage of the review process for the Design Documentation, which also includes the environmental impact assessment (EIA) for the Project in Russia.

Experts undertook numerous surveys of animal and plant life in the Black Sea and at the Anapa landfall and assessed the potential environmental impacts of the pipeline construction and operation. They proposed numerous measures to avoid or mitigate any negative impacts, as a result of which the Project is not expected to have a significant impact on the environment. Most of the identified effects on the environment will be associated with construction works and are expected to be temporary and minor after mitigation measures are put in place.

“This is a significant milestone for the Project and a testament to our efforts.” says Dr. Oleg Aksyutin, CEO of South Stream Transport. “We have worked over 2 years on the design and construction plans of the offshore pipeline to ensure that the pipeline will be safe and not a burden for the environment or the people in the vicinity.”

South Stream Transport performed an EIA in accordance with Russian requirements and is undertaking an additional Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) in line with guidelines of international finance institutions.
