    Turkey has asked for additional natural gas supplies from Russia from 2015, including via the Blue Stream-2 pipeline, the CEO of Russia's state-controlled energy giant Gazprom said on Friday.

    NOVO-OGARYOVO, April 3 (RIA Novosti) - Turkey has asked for additional natural gas supplies from Russia from 2015, including via the Blue Stream-2 pipeline, the CEO of Russia's state-controlled energy giant Gazprom said on Friday.

    The planned Blue Stream-2 pipeline, part of the existing Blue Stream system linking Russia to Turkey via the Black Sea, would extend the system to Israel. The throughput capacity of the project, being carried out by Gazprom and Italy's ENI, is planned at 8 billion cubic meters.

    "From 2015, Turkey wants to receive additional volumes of Russian gas, including via the Blue Stream-2 pipeline" for its domestic market, Alexei Miller told Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

    Moscow and Ankara agreed in late March to set up a working group for the Blue Stream-2 project.

    The Russian premier also said he was counting on the support of Israel in the construction of a new oil pipeline via Turkey and Israel.

    "I recently spoke with the Israeli prime minister-elect, and I reminded him of the creation of a new pipeline via Turkey and Israel. I believe there will be support from the Israeli government," Putin told Miller.

    The mooted new pipeline would link to the Samsun-Ceyhan oil pipeline, due to be constructed across the beds of the Red and Mediterranean seas.
