OPENNING CEREMONY OF TURKSTREAM

Changing longstanding energy maps, openning ceremony of the TurkStream pipeline project which will carry Russian natural gas to southern Europe through Turkey was held with the participation of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

 

 

Openning ceremony in Haliç Congress Center was also attended by the President of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić and the Prime Minister of Bulgaria, Boyko Borissov.

 

 

Stressing that Russian-Turkish strategic partnership reveals concrete results for both sides, “The pipeline was a sign of interaction and cooperation for the benefit of our people and the people of all Europe, the whole world," Putin said at the inauguration ceremony.

 

 

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said “Thanks to this project, TurkStream pipeline will carry 15.75 bcm of Russian gas to our country directly without any intermediates. TurkStream will be one of the symbolic works of the new era.

 

 

Calling for transforming Mediterranean into co-operation area, not conflict, Erdoğan said “We’re ready to get closer to ones who take one step closer to us. Right holder of the name ‘TurkStream’ is my dear friend Mr. Putin.”

 

 

President Erdoğan and Russian President Putin opened valves for gas flow together with presidents of Bulgaria, Hungary and Serbia on the main stage.

 

TurkStream pipeline that will carry Russian natural gas to Turkey and Europe through Turkey was launched today with an openning ceremony held in Istanbul.

The ceremony in Instanbul, Turkey, was attended by the President Erdoğan, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

TurkStream natural gas pipeline project consists of two pipelines (TA1 and TA2) installed under the Black Sea, 930 km long and 2200 km deep, and each of which has a capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters gas transportation.

The first string will deliver gas to Turkey, while the second string is intended for gas transit to southern and southeastern Europe through Turkish territory, then passing through Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary.

A 400 km long pipeline will be built for the Serbian leg of the project.

TurkStream emerges ashore on the Turkish coast in the Thrace region, the town of Kıyıköy.

The agreement regarding the TurkStream natural gas pipeline project was signed on 10 October 2016 and entered into force on 21 February 2017.
