Speaking about production and transportation perspectives of energy carriers in Caspian Sea Roberts looked through the possible routes for accessing of gas to the world markets. He noted that, EU supported on Nabucco projects. Other projects are not supported sufficiently.

Roberts said that Turkmen gas was important for this project: “I regret that, Turkmenistan is on the passive position compared to Azerbaijan’s proactive position. Turkmenistan is on passive position and expects the route versions from others, while Azerbaijan takes active steps on extraction, exploitation and accessing of gas to the world markets”.

As to Kazakhstan, Roberts hesitated and noted that time would show. In general, Roberts said Azerbaijan was the country, which pursued the most stable and consistent oil and gas policy, he showed Azerbaijan as an example for the other countries in the region.

“Moreover, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan are the most reliable transit countries of the region, they proved it with the recent activities in this sphere”, Roberts added.

Generally, in his speech, Roberts noted Azerbaijan as the most stable and proactive country of the region. Also he said that Turkmenistan should take more active steps for the proof of seriousness of its opinion on gas transportation to Europe.
