Background

On 20 December 2007, Russia, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan agreed to construct a new Caspian pipeline parallel to the existing Central Asia–Center gas pipeline (CAC-3) pipeline.[1] The pipeline was planned to be built between Belek compressor station in Turkmenistan and Alexandrov Gay compressor station.[2] Capacity of the new pipeline would be 20–30 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year and it would be supplied from the planned East–West pipeline.[3][4] Construction of the pipeline was to start in the second half of 2009.[5] In October 2010 Russia's top energy official Igor Sechin declared that the project would not go forward.[6]
