GASSING UP: A new pipeline to bring gas to Europe from the Caspian Sea will go through Greece and then undersea to Italy.

PIPE DREAMS: BP, the main developer of the huge Shah Deniz gas field in the Caspian Sea, said the project was awarded to the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline. The other contender, the Nabucco West, would have run across Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and Austria.

GETTING AROUND RUSSIA: The EU and the U.S. support building connections to Azerbaijan's gas as a way to reduce Europe's dependence on Russian gas.
