Turkey Approves Construction of TurkStream Second Gas Pipeline

Gazprom has received a construction permit from the authorities of the Turkish Republic for the second string of the TurkStream gas pipeline’s offshore section stretching to the Turkish coast.

“The TurkStream project is well underway. In accordance with the plan, it is carried out simultaneously at three sections: onshore in Russia and Turkey and offshore in the Black Sea. Over 760 kilometers of the two strings are already built at the offshore section. Construction of the landfall in Russia is nearly completed.

In Turkey, work started at the construction site of the receiving terminal. Today, we received a permit to lay the second string in the exclusive economic zone and territorial waters of Turkey. We now have all of the required permits from the Turkish Government to lay the TurkStream gas pipeline in the offshore area. It is therefore a certainty that both strings of the gas pipeline will be put into operation right on time, before the end of 2019,” said Alexey Miller, chairman of the Gazprom management committee.

TurkStream is the project for a gas pipeline stretching across the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey and further to Turkey’s border with neighboring countries.

The first string of the gas pipeline is intended for Turkish consumers, while the second string will deliver gas to southern and southeastern Europe. Each string will have the throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas per year. Construction of TurkStream’s offshore section started on May 7, 2017.
