ANKARA May 5 Projected investment in the
Nabucco gas pipeline has been revised up to 12-15 billion euros
($18-22 billion) from 7.9 billion euros, sources close to the
matter in Turkey told Reuters.
Nabucco plan intends to bring up to 31 billion cubic metres
of gas annually from the Caspian region to an Austrian hub via
Turkey and the Balkans. It aims to open in 2015.
Some partners investing in Nabucco are opposed to meeting
the revised sum and seek a cost reassessment, the sources said.
The investment decision could be delayed until 2012, given
the increased costs and supply problems, the sources added.
