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.
- 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.
