Erdogan Specified The Volume Of The Gas Field Discovered In The Black Sea
The volume of the Sakarya gas field discovered by Turkey in the Black sea in August is 405 billion cubic meters, President of the Republic Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.
"If on August 21 this year we announced the discovery of 320 billion cubic meters of gas in the Black sea, the latest research suggests an increase in the volume of proven reserves of the new field by another 85 billion cubic meters, that is, up to 405 billion cubic meters," the Anadolu Agency quoted him as saying.
The Turkish President said that Ankara intends to start providing the population with gas found by 2023. According to him, the open field is the largest in the country. The development of the new field will ensure the country's energy security and create new jobs, Erdogan said.
In January of this year, Erdoğan, together with the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, put into operation the gas pipeline "Turkish stream." Turkish stream is a new export pipeline of Gazprom intended for gas supplies to Turkey and transit through it to Europe.
