Historical day in TurkCurrent project
A critical phase of the Turkish Stream project, which will carry Russian natural gas to Europe, has been left behind today. The marine section of the natural gas pipeline was completed by lowering the last pipe.
The project consisted of laying two 930 kilometers long lines under the Black Sea, each with a capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters. The first line to Turkey, while the second line will carry natural gas to European countries. Thus, Turkey will be substituted in the natural gas received through the western line.
I TURKAK Natural Gas Pipeline Project, proceeding from the bottom of the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey annually is a natural gas pipeline project to export natural gas 31.5 billion cubic meters.
construction of the marine sector, November 19, President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan date 2018 and the Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin attended the ceremony is completed.
In this giant project, pipes made of a special steel about 4 cm thick, each measuring 12 meters in length and weighing 9 tons, were welded together on the construction vessel and placed on the seabed.
As one of the largest energy infrastructure projects in the world, TürkAkım will make significant contributions to the energy security of the region as well as being technically groundbreaking.
In the Russian coast, TURKAK I started near the city of Anapa Offshore Pipeline, floor-to-ceiling by the Black Sea coast of Turkey, near tactics Kiyiköy town in Thrace. I TURKAK, Istanbul, Bursa, Kocaeli, Izmir, such as the highly populated industrial city in the west of Turkey will be the guarantee of providing natural gas production in the region.
half of the annual total of 31.5 billion cubic meters of gas will be exported via my TURKAK used in Turkey, the other half will be exported to Europe.
Pioneering Spirit, which is the world's largest construction ship and which uses the most advanced technologies in this field, was involved in the construction of the Turkish Stream Pipeline. This giant ship, which moves at an average speed of 5 kilometers per day, has set a world record in this field by laying 6.3 kilometers of pipes on a day on August 26, 2018. & nbsp;
At the point where the pipeline comes ashore, namely the purchase terminal construction in Kıyıköy is still in progress. Here, natural gas from the pipes in the sea, will be transferred to land pipelines. Following the purchase of the terminal in Luleburgaz BOTAS will build Turkey's first black line that will connect to the distribution network. The other land route to Europe will be built by BOTAŞ-Gazprom joint company.
31.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas to be transported through the project is sufficient to meet the annual energy needs of 15 million households. & Nbsp;
Following the completion of the construction of the purchasing terminal in Kiyikoy, TurkCurrent project will be completed in 2019 with the realization of land-sea connections and all tests.
TürkAkım Natural Gas Pipeline project will be one of the foundations of the sustainable energy future in the region and the foundation of Turkish-Russian friendship thanks to the gains it will provide to all parties.
