Turkey, Qatar mull LNG pipeline via Saudi Arabia

ANKARA, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Turkey and Qatar have formed teams to start work on a possible LNG pipeline across Saudi Arabia that would ship Qatari gas to Turkey, Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said on Saturday.

A Turkish team would travel to Qatar within one or two months, he said in a statement which gave no more details.

Yildiz also said Turkey would postpone a decision on whether to approve or cancel a tender to build the country's first nuclear power plant. A Russian-led consortium of Inter RAO IRAO.MM, Atomstroiexport and Turkey's Park Teknik submitted the sole bid in a tender last year. (Writing by Ibon Villelabeitia; Editing by David Stamp)
