Turkey: The largest natural gas deposit will begin production on April 20th
The discovery of natural gas in the Black Sea will begin production and delivery as early as April 20th.
The Sakarya deposit in the Black Sea will begin transmission during this week and will initially produce around 10 million cubic meters per day, reaching 40 million cubic meters per day in three years. Natural gas distribution to households is expected to begin in May.
Turkey currently depends on oil and gas imports from Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Qatar, the United States, Nigeria, and Algeria, but by exploiting this deposit, it could become self-sufficient and alleviate its trade balance.
