March 16, 2007 • Philip BurgessBlog

YEP is a pipeline, which runs from the Yamal peninsula in Russia’s Arctic to Frankfurt on Oder on the Polish-German border. It will carry Russian gas for over 4,000 km (2,485 miles). The whole pipeline, expected to be completed by 2010, was estimated to cost about $10 billion and will have a capacity to carry 67 billion cubic metres (2,370 billion cubic feet) of gas a year through two stretches.
