Draft Convention on Caspian legal status allows laying pipelines on seabed


The draft Convention on the legal status of the Caspian Sea provides possibility for the participating countries to lay underwater pipelines, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the document published by the government of the Russian Federation.

 

"The parties may lay underwater cables and pipelines along the bottom of the Caspian Sea," article 14 of the draft Convention says. At the same time, it is stressed that such projects must meet environmental requirements and standards set forth in international treaties to which they are parties.

 

The countries that lay the pipeline are obliged to inform the parties to the future Convention of the coordinates of the areas where cables and pipelines are laid and underwater work is prohibited.
