In 2021, supplies via the Blue Stream gas pipeline from Russia to Turkey reached a historic record.
“For Gazprom, Blue Stream was the first offshore gas pipeline directly connecting us with a large export market,” commented Elena Burmistrova, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee and Director General of Gazprom Export. “Almost two decades later, we see that this approach was fully right. The record results of Blue Stream make us optimistic and prove the right focus on direct deliveries to our customers via offshore gas pipelines.”
Last year, Russian gas giant Gazprom supplied 15.98 billion cubic metres (bcm) via Blue Stream. It is the best annual result since the start of its operation in 2003. The growth in supplies through the pipeline coincided with a record gas consumption in Turkey. According to preliminary data, in 2021 it amounted to around 61 bcm.
