Greek-Italian Joint Venture Seeks Contractors for EastMed Gas Pipeline

ATHENS (Reuters) — A joint venture between Greek utility DEPA and Italy's Edison is seeking to shortlist two contractors to build part of a pipeline to carry natural gas from the eastern Mediterranean's rapidly developing gas fields to Europe, DEPA said on Thursday.  European governments and Israel last year agreed to proceed with the $6 to $7 billion so-called EastMed project. The pipeline is expected initially to carry 10 billion cubic meters of gas per year from Israeli and Cypriot waters to the Greek island of Crete, on to the Greek mainland and into Europe's gas network via Italy.  Greece, Cyprus and Israel in January signed a deal to build the 1,900 km (1,180-mile) subsea pipeline.
