What will be the fate of the energy of the epic, which in Turkey is called the 'bargain of the century' to be seen. While it is obvious that to implement this project, which discussed since 2002, will be broken quite a few copies. The first and main question concerning the fate of 'Nabucco' – it is his commercial prospects or guarantee the filling line gas. 'The process will not be quick, primarily because not resolved the main issue of the project – filling the pipeline with gas. Azerbaijani gas to Nabucco is not enough. In Iraq, insecurity reigns, and when out of the country's gas will be exported to Europe, is unknown. With respect to Iran, its participation in the project is not possible to normalize relations with the United States' – RIA Novosti said a leading Turkish expert on energy issues, the representative of the World Energy Council Necdet Pamir. The main gas sources of Nabucco are Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan, but the volume of raw materials, some of these countries will be pumped to Europe, not enough to remove the pipe at full capacity.

True, Speaking on television on Sunday, the president of Azerbaijan said that his country's gas is enough to fill a promising pipeline. According to Turkish media reports that Turkmenistan has promised to deliver on Nabucco 10 billion cubic meters of gas a year, and Azerbaijan – 8 billion. About 2 billion cubic meters of gas per year are expected from Egypt, and 7-8 billion – of Iraq, but with the last question until more questions than answers, experts say. Supporters of the Nabucco convinced that the implementation of this project, along with reduced dependence on Russia for Turkey's natural gas (about 65% of its gas from abroad, Turkey imported from Russia) will help strengthen the foundation for the process of its integration into the European Union as a full member. 'Nabucco' – not only the project, which reduces the dependence of Turkey on Russia for gas and satisfy its growing demand for it. Along with attracting investment (4-5 billion) and create new jobs (10-15 thousand), it makes Turkey one of the key countries in the energy corridor between the Caspian basin and Europe "- wrote on Monday in comments the newspaper" Milliyet ".

'Project' Nabucco 'Turkey will provide important geopolitical dividends. Through its implementation, Turkey will have the right to vote in the world in oil and natural gas. This project will transform Turkey into a global Energy Center ', – the chief economist of the International Energy Agency, Fatih Birol. 'Signatures to the agreement in Ankara are very important as an example of political will, and should be considered in as a turning point in the project ', – the expert said the newspaper' Sabah '. A similar opinion is shared by Turkey's energy minister. Nabucco – not only energy, but also the strategic project "- said Taner Yildiz, in an interview "Yeni Safak", adding that through the implementation of 'deal of the century' Turkey will turn into 'energy safety in Europe'.
