Turkish Energy Minister: We agreed with Gazprom on a gas hub in Turkey

After the sabotage of the Baltic gas pipelines in September last year, the question arose of how to restore the lost volume of Russian gas transit to Europe.

Then Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that this could be done by redirecting these volumes of gas to the Black Sea region. And then the Russian president named Turkey as a possible place to create a gas hub, from where blue fuel from Russia would go to other countries and, above all, to Europe.



However, a year has passed since then and there has been no special information about the progress of this project. According to the Turkish newspaper Takvim, the parties (the Turkish government and the Russian company Gazprom) managed to agree on the implementation of a project to create a hub for gas from Russia in Turkey.

The publication refers to the Turkish Minister of Energy Alparslan Bayraktar, according to whom, the country's government has agreed with Gazprom that a roadmap for the gas hub will be drawn up in the near future and work on this project will begin.

We have agreed on this issue

- Bayraktar said, the Takvim newspaper reports.

Let us recall that the Turkish Stream gas pipeline runs from Russia to Turkey along the bottom of the Black Sea, launched in 2020 to supply gas to Turkish and European consumers.

    The same rake.

    Erdogan will not last forever. Türkiye is a NATO country. Under a different regime, everything will be possible to undermine and tear apart.

    We need to build our own gas carriers if we want to reliably export and develop LNG production.
    To gasify the territory of Russia, gas can be used to make fertilizer, fuel, paint and much more.

    And we are again pushing raw materials to another “partner”.

        Now the Turks can do ANYTHING. And we will simply “swallow” all anti-Russian actions, Because THIS IS A BUSINESS PARTNER! GAZPROM receives money. All shareholders, including those placed in director’s chairs, perked up! laughing hi

    What lessons have we learned?

    Rhetorical question: Can NATO countries be reliable partners for Russia?

    It's been a year since the terrorist attack on Nord Stream. On September 26, 2022, news came about the discovery of unprecedented destruction on both lines of gas pipelines. A photograph of bubbling bubbles on the surface of the Baltic Sea has spread all over the world. In the exclusive economic zone of Sweden and Denmark (a NATO country), the energy infrastructure was blown up, and the official culprit has still not been found.

    The blowing up of gas pipelines for Russia was first of all a geopolitical, and then an economic blow.

    In essence, it was an attack on German energy sovereignty. The capacity of both gas pipelines was 110 billion cubic meters.

    Germany did not consume that much. At one time, Berlin was assigned the role of the world's largest energy hub, which could distribute energy resources throughout Europe.

    The influence that Germany would gain in the EU would be unprecedented.

    However, the puppet Scholz abandoned the national interests of his country, and obediently, without resistance, exposed his back to the blows of his “dear partners.”

      Has Scholz abandoned the country's national interests? Who asked the Gruppenführer? Scholz is as much a puppet as Baybaiden.

    A good project. We liquefy gas - the Turks liquefy it and sell it all over the world. Erdogan left, we closed the pipeline. Another 40 billion will go to the north, Karelia - Kola Peninsula - Belokamenka. Novotek will have an LNG plant there. Kola Nuclear Power Plant will become a production hub hydrogen. That's it - there is no gas for the EU in the same volumes after the end of the Northern War.. And Israel acted like a pig, stopping gas production at sea. In the EU, prices today jumped to almost $ 570 per 1000 cubic meters. Egypt is terribly not happy, it sat on Jewish gas pipeline liquefying gas for Europe. The fact that Qatar will renegotiate contracts because of Gaza is a lie, he denied this nonsense.

    Conditions for creating a gas hub:
    - the availability of various gas sources creates favorable conditions to avoid the dominance of suppliers;
    - a strong consumer base with competing purchasing interests - are crucial for the development of the “right” market;
    - legislation allowing domestic and foreign participants to trade and gain access to gas is the most important condition for creating a gas hub;
    - trust in local government that does not intervene when prices run counter to local interests;
    - excess supply of gas - necessary in the early stages of development of a shopping center, allowing for the exchange of goods in significant volumes.


    Just think - does Turkey have this?

      And I don’t care what Turkey has or doesn’t have, it’s not Greece where it has everything.

      The main thing for us is that Turkey has money for our gas. And for the Turks, so that the Europeans, who have no brains, have money for the gas supplied to them, that’s all the conditions.

        The Turks do not have money to pay for our gas:
        https://www.vesti.ru/finance/article/3345572
        "Officially, the $600 million gas payment has been postponed until next year. Rising energy prices have had a huge impact on this," one of the sources told Reuters.
        It was the first delay under the agreement announced last week. According to the agreement, the amount of deferred payments from Turkish energy companies to Russia can reach 4 billion USA.

        Exports of Russian gas to the EU via the Turkish Stream gas pipeline in May 2023 reached a minimum for the year, amounting to only 774,6 million cubic meters. m, or 25 million cubic meters m per day.
        Total Russian gas exports to Europe (excluding Turkey) in May decreased to 65,2 million cubic meters m per day.
        For comparison: in December 2022, Russian gas exports to Europe amounted to 82,8 million cubic meters. m per day, and in December 2021 - about 380 million cubic meters m per day.

    Wasn’t there a hub in Turkey - where did South Stream go?
