GAZPROM – FIRST BILLION CUBIC METERS OF GAS DELIVERED VIA TURKSTREAM

Gazprom supplied its first billion cubic meters of gas via the TurkStream gas pipeline.
Of that amount, about 54 per cent went to the Turkish gas market and some 46 per cent was delivered to the Turkey-Bulgaria border.
TurkStream, a natural gas pipeline running from Russia to Turkey, begins at the Russkaya compressor station near Anapa. It runs approximately 930 km (578 mi) offshore, of which approximately 230 km (140 mi) is located in the Russian maritime zones and approximately 700 km (435 mi) is located in the Turkish waters. The landing point in Turkey is K?y?köy, a village in the district of Vize in K?rklareli Province at northwestern Turkey. From there, the 69 km (43 mi) section of the first line continues to the distribution center in Lüleburgaz. The 145 km (90 mi) section will connect the Lüleburgaz distribution center with Ipsala on the Turkey–Greece border. Alternatively, the second line will continue from K?y?köy to Malkoçlar on the Turkey–Bulgaria border, where it will be connected to the existing Trans-Balkan pipeline system.
