Gazprom Export to supply Turkish BOTAS with gas for the next 4 years

Gazprom’s subsidiary Gazprom Export will supply the Turkish Petroleum Pipeline Corporation (BOTAS) with gas.

The news came after Gazprom Export signed a set of agreements with its main partner in Turkey, BOTAS on the cooperation in gas supply and utilisation of gas transportation infrastructure.

The new contract foresees the provision of supply of up to 5.75 billion cubic metres per year for the next 4 years from the beginning of January 2022 through the TurkStream pipeline, the new gas infrastructure between Russia and Turkey.

The TurkStream pipeline connects Russia with Turkey through the Black Sea and provides gas to Turkish customers as well as to Southern and Southeastern Europe.

In 2021 alone, Gazprom supplied Turkey with about 27 billion cubic metres of gas which was two-thirds more in volume compared to 2020.

This increase comes as no surprise since energy and gas consumption is growing in Turkey. In 2021, the country imported 104 per cent of gas as it experienced record demand for this particular fuel.
