Russia banking on new gas pipeline to Europe

As construction begins, some industry analysts question if pipeline across Black Sea and Balkans is necessary.

    Construction of a major new gas pipeline to Europe has begun on Russia's Black Sea coast.

    The South Stream pipeline will run across the sea and through the Balkans to central Europe.

    However, some industry experts are questioning whether the $20bn project is really necessary.
