You're reading: Putin, Miller unveil pipeline project to bypass Ukraine via Poland

Reviving
the Shtokman extraction project in the Russian Arctic (no specifics mentioned).

Adding
a third parallel line to the Nord Stream pipeline on the Baltic seabed to
Western Europe, and prolonging that third line to supply the Netherlands and
Britain with Russian gas. This would boost Nord Stream’s capacity from the
existing 55 billion cubic meters (bcm) to more than 80 bcm per year.

Designing
the South Stream pipeline for its originally proposed capacity of 63 bcm per
year, with four parallel lines on the seabed of the Black Sea en route to
Europe. This seems to imply reinstating South Stream’s southwestern branch
toward Italy, which Moscow had dropped in 2011 from the initial project,
instead prioritizing the northwestern branch to Central Europe.
