Merkel in Transcaucasia. Isn't it time for Gazprom to worry?

In Tbilisi the German chancellor has expressed support of integration of Georgia in the EU. On Friday she will go to Yerevan, then to Baku. Will discuss "The southern gas corridor" along which the Azerbaijani gas will go to Europe through Turkey of the Photo with the president Aliyev of Merkel: The three-day tour Angela Merkel has begun Axel Schmidt/Reuters on August 23 with visit of Georgia. On Friday the German chancellor will go to Armenia, and from there to Azerbaijan where plans to discuss including energy projects. On the eve of the tour scandal has burst: Azerbaijan has declared persona non grata the deputy head of parliamentary group on the Caucasus Albert Weiler. The deputy of the Bundestag drove to Nagorno-Karabakh twice from Armenia so after visit of Georgia and Armenia he should leave the German chancellor's plane. Despite it, Merkel didn't begin to cancel a visit to Baku. As the official representative of the government of Germany has said, the visit to Azerbaijan "makes sense and is important". However, in Germany expectations from this tour modest. Alexander Rar is a journalist, the political scientist "Madam Merkel cares for the place in the history, she needed to be governed not much years Germany. She has seen in the end what just in the direction of Central Asia, the former Soviet Union, except as Ukraine, she did little. It seems to me, in this plan it is just routine trip which has been planned long ago and which just has now turned out". Possibly, one of main objectives of a trip of Merkel — discussion of "The southern gas transmission corridor" on which gas from the Caspian region through Georgia and Turkey will go to Southern Europe. It is supposed to involve already existing Baku — Tbilisi — Erzurum gas pipeline in the project. However, there are yet not enough capacities of the Azerbaijani Shah Deniz field to fill even this pipe with a capacity of 16 billion cubic meters of gas a year, the deputy director general on investments of IK "Univer Capital" Dmitry Aleksandrov:dmitry Alexandrov the deputy CEO for investments of IK "Univer Capital" "Says Azerbaijan has resumed purchases of gas in Russia — with guarantee to fulfill the obligations for deliveries through the southern route. Therefore more likely here can there be a speech about that Germany, her industry participated in potential expansion of volumes of gas production by Azerbaijan". But now it is already about delivering gas to Europe and from other countries of the region, including from Turkmenistan. And Germany supports this initiative, the independent expert Dmitry Lyutyagin:dmitry Lyutyagin the independent expert "Explains the document across the Caspian Sea which assumes an opportunity to discuss infrastructure energy projects on a bottom of the Caspian Sea is signed. It means that there can be an opportunity to receive gas from Turkmenistan, from the same Iran which has borders at the Caspian Sea too. Respectively, now there is an opportunity once again to synchronize watches and to look what can turn out the strategy of supply of gas to the European countries. I think that on it Merkel also builds the tour".
