(Energy-pedia) Turkey has permitted Gazprom to carry out offshore prospecting under the South Stream pipeline project, designed to carry gas to Europe under the Black Sea, Pavel Oderov, head of Gazprom's external economic activities department, said on Friday. 'We will start the offshore prospecting from May,' Oderov said. The offshore prospecting will be part of the procedure for getting Turkey's permission to build the pipeline, in which Wintershall, Eni and EdF will take part, Oderov said.
