Baku, August 11, AZERTAC
Türkiye will be ready to use natural gas from its Black Sea discovery in March next year, the country’s Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Donmez said Thursday.
“I hope we will be able to use this natural gas on land in the first quarter of 2023, in March,” Donmez said while attending Anadolu Agency’s (AA) Editor’s Desk.
The Black Sea discovery refers to the natural gas find of around 540 billion cubic meters (bcm) in the offshore Sakarya Gas Field.
The country’s drill ship, Fatih, discovered 405 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas in July 2020, followed by a second discovery of 135 bcm in June 2021.
