Gazprom Receives First Permits for TurkStream Pipeline

Gazprom has received the first permits for the TurkStream project from the authorities of the Turkish Republic after the decision to resume the natural gas pipeline project this year.

At last week’s negotiations between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Berat Albayrak, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of the Turkish Republic, the parties reached the agreement to shortly complete all the required preparatory procedures for launching the TurkStream 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.
