Turkey to launch the TurkStream gas pipeline next month. This was stated by Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Donmez, Hurriyet Daily News reports.
"We will launch TurkStream on January 8. We will be indispensable in the international natural gas markets with pipelines running both from the east and from the north," he said.

Speaking about the opening of the Trans-Anatolian Gas Pipeline (TANAP) in Europe on November 30, Donmez said: "When TANAP was first signed, people said the project was a dream."

"And now we are completing another gigantic project after TANAP. Although TurkStream and TANAP will ensure the unhindered use of natural gas by our country, we will also play a key role in ensuring the security of natural gas supplies to Europe," the minister said.

The Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline has a total capacity of 31,5 billion cubic meters, of which the first line will provide Turkish consumers with a capacity of 15,75 billion cubic meters of Russian gas.

The second line will supply another 15,75 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe through Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia and Hungary.

Until the end of May 2020, it is planned to build a 308-kilometer section of the gas pipeline from the Bulgarian village of Polski-Senovec to the border of Serbia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that gas would flow to Turkey through the Turkish Stream pipeline before the end of 2019.
