As quoted in the market report:

The South Stream pipeline project, due to start operating in 2015, is set to pump up to 63 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually. The gas would be piped from Russia under the Black Sea to Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Slovenia, Austria and Italy in one leg, and to Croatia and Greece in a second. Russia provides about a third of Europe’s natural gas consumption. Last year, Gazprom exported about 180 billion cubic meters of natural gas.
