Turkey to start transferring natural gas from Black Sea in 2023

EconomyTurkey to start transferring natural gas from Black Sea in 2023

Ankara (The Times Groupe)- Turkey will begin transferring 10 million cubic meters (mcm) of natural gas daily from the Sakarya Gas Field in the Black Sea to the national transmission system in the first quarter of 2023, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at an event marking the laying of the first offshore pipeline for Black Sea natural gas that production in Sakarya Gas Field would peak in 2026.

Turkey plans to construct a 150-kilometer-long (93-mile) subsea pipeline to transport gas from the field to onshore, where it will then be connected to the national gas grid.

Turkish officials see energy as a basis of regional cooperation rather than a source of tension and conflict, Erdogan said.

Our multifaceted struggle will continue until Turkey becomes a country whose security of energy supply is completely ensured,” he said.

Erdoan also announced that Turkey’s fourth drilling ship is named Abdulhamid Han, one of the sultans of the Ottoman Empire.

“It is equally important that we make such a historical discovery using only domestic resources,” he added.

Currently, Turkish drillships Fatih, Kanuni, and Yavuz operate in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

540 billion cubic meters of output have been extracted so far from the Black Sea.
