Kremlin says Russia may build TurkStream second line directly to Bulgaria

MOSCOW, May 30 (Reuters) - Russia has been discussing the possibility of building the second line of the TurkStream gas pipeline directly to Bulgaria via the Black Sea, a Kremlin spokesman was quoted as saying on Wednesday by Interfax news agency.

Russian gas giant Gazprom has built the first line of the pipeline to Turkey for local gas consumption. The second line is designed for consumers in southern Europe.

The two lines of TurkStream have the annual capacity of 15.75 billion cubic metres each. (Reporting by Gabrielle Tétrault-Farber; writing by Vladimir Soldatkin; editing by David Evans)
