    Greece is known for its history and climate, but not for oil and gas.

    That may be about to change with a new pipeline being completed across the north of the country that will transport natural gas from the Caspian Sea to Western Europe.

    It's part of a European Union policy to move away from dependence on Russian gas after shipments were stopped for two weeks during the 2009 Ukraine crisis, causing shortages in southeastern Europe.
