Gazprom has received a survey permit for two strings of the TurkStream gas pipeline’s offshore section in Turkey’s territorial waters.
“I would like to highlight the constructiveness and promptness on the part of our Turkish partners,” said Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee. “The TurkStream project is progressing at commendable speed. We have received another important permit for the project.”
The TurkStream Pipeline will start on the Russian coast near the town of Anapa and run over 900 kilometers through the Black Sea to come ashore in the Thrace region of Turkey. The offshore component of the system will consist of two parallel pipelines running through the Black Sea, terminating near the village of Kiyikoy.
From Kiyikoy, an underground pipeline will be developed connecting TurkStream to the existing pipeline network at Luleburgaz. From there, the route will continue to its end point at the Turkey-Europe border.
