The first branch of the Turkish Stream began to fill with gas Look Info
/ View.Info / The filling of natural gas at the first of the two branches of the offshore part of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline has begun. This is the last stage of testing before the pipeline is commissioned.
Filling the gas pipeline system is a significant step towards starting real gas supplies to Turkey and Southeast Europe through the new gas pipeline system. The planned commercial operation of the pipeline should start before the end of the year.
The gas flowing through the Turkish Stream is supplied through Gazprom's Unified Gas Supply System. The necessary pressure to fill the Turkish flow system is created by the Russkaya compressor station located near Anapa on the Black Sea. The gas pipelines will be filled with natural gas, starting from offshore facilities near Anapa to the receiving terminal located near the Turkish coast of Kiakei.
The work on commissioning the offshore section began after both threads were certified by DNV-GL, which confirmed that the integrity and technical characteristics of the two 32-inch diameter gas pipeline system were in accordance with the "DNV GL Marine Standard for submarine pipelines "and other relevant international standards. The filling of the second branch with natural gas will start after the filling of the first branch is completed.
Construction work at the Reception Terminal in Turkey is currently in its final stages. The operator of the Turkish gas transmission network BOTAŞ is simultaneously undertaking a set of measures for the construction of the first land section in order to connect the Turkish flow and the Turkish gas transmission network. Currently, the Gazprom-BOTA Joint Undertaking is launching the second gas transit transit ground in European countries.
