Turkish Ministry of Energy expects Black Sea gas supplies to start by the end of April
Gas from the Black Sea Sakarya field will begin to flow to local consumers in Turkey by the end of April, Energy Minister Fatih Donmez said. The authorities expected the start of deliveries in March, but the deadline was pushed back due to the earthquake.
“We followed the plan, but there was a delay due to earthquakes. We plan to start deliveries by the end of April,” Mr. Donmez said to the TV channel. TRT.
The Sakarya field was discovered in 2020. Its reserves are estimated at 400 billion cubic meters of gas. At the first stages, it is planned to receive about 10 million cubic meters per day from it. By 2027-2028, the figure should be increased to 40 million cubic meters.
