Russian vice prime minister, Igor Sechin is skeptical about the NABUCCO project. Sechin thinks that project has no chance of increasing the volume of natural gas transported. The NABUCCO project was initiated as an alternative route for providing natural gas to Europe, rather than through Russia. It is thought that Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Iraq will be the main suppliers of the gas. The project will cost up to 8 billion euros for the 3,300 km gas pipeline to be built. It is natural for Russia to want to impede the project and will therefore carry out any type of propaganda to meet its aim. The participant countries and companies are committed to implement the project to secure Europe with an alternative gas supply.
