Turkey refuses to impose restrictions on gas deals at the hub being created jointly with Russia

The head of the Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, Fatih Donmez, announced that Ankara has no intentions to impose restrictions on the gas hub in Istanbul, which is being created jointly with Russia.


The Minister noted that the future platform will be guided by market mechanisms in the sale of natural gas. The Turkish authorities will not interfere in transactions between the seller of gas and its buyers, despite the economic sanctions imposed against Russia.

Some Russian economists, however, do not see much point in creating a new gas hub in Turkey in the absence of support for this undertaking from the EU leadership. In order to receive significant volumes of gas through this hub, the EU countries must guarantee constant demand for many years to come, as well as build expensive infrastructure facilities on their territory.

The Turkish authorities, for their part, see opportunities to use this project in the hope that the EU countries will show interest in using the new hub in the future, because without systematic purchases of gas at an affordable price, the EU industry will begin to decline.

Currently, work aimed at creating a Turkish gas hub project is ongoing.

        Well, they don’t poke anyone with this dagger (yet). But they can. So a dagger in the sleeve is a very useful and necessary thing. Have you ever thought about why we, who are so tight and passionate, always have an empty sleeve? No aces, no daggers... It's sad.

        No one is going to kiss them on the gums.
        For Russia, an independent Turkey is beneficial, with which it is possible to negotiate mutually beneficially, and not Turkey, a puppet of the United States.

      Well, Russia still needs it, so thanks to the Turks for that. They will now supply gas to the Bulgarians and dictate conditions ..
      After all, Turkey was never accepted into the EU, now Erdogan will be cast out and spread rot on Europe And so be it!

        Since you can only sell to them, the Turks pressured you with discounts and deferred payment for up to a year. Super scam, but for them.

    Considering that Western countries are intensively looking for other suppliers and are not interested in Russian gas yet, but for how long ..? It seems that everything will be decided by the resolution of the conflict in Ukraine .. But how and how it will end ..

      Yes, they are not looking for anything, all these gas carriers both went to Sabetta and go, you can see the routes to marine traffic

        Only LNG costs an order of magnitude more expensive than pipeline gas. Enough to keep warm, but not to develop industry. Production in Europe will become unprofitable.

    Oh yes Erdogan, oh yes the son of a female dog - like this, in one fell swoop, fuck the LNG business for the amers! I give a standing ovation not only to the enterprise, but also to the courage of the president of not the strongest and not the richest country, who, however, unlike SOME, does not hesitate to bend everyone who would dream of bending him. Others would like to learn.

    So far, these are just words, there are no figures for mutual investments in the gas hub of Russia, Turkey and Azerbaijan. Yes, and Abramovich is in ambush, though he doesn’t have much cash.

    Turkey is virtuoso sitting on 10 chairs at once, but the United States will still bend it if the vital interests of the United States are affected.
    If a gas hub is created in Turkey, the Russian Federation will not be able to use it without the permission of the US and the EU, since they are the end consumers of gas from this hub.
    In an extreme case, pipelines from the Russian Federation to Turkey may suffer the fate of Nord Stream - the sluggish reaction of the Russian Federation to the sabotage showed the United States that such an option is quite acceptable.
    Turkey is such a partner that can easily replace 10 enemies at once.
