Alexey Miller's column
“Today marks exactly one year since the TurkStream offshore gas pipeline was launched in a grand opening ceremony. The pipeline is reliably transmitting Russian gas across the Black Sea for consumers in Turkey and as many as six European countries: Bulgaria, Greece, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Since bringing TurkStream into operation, Gazprom has increased the gas pipeline's utilization rate by 2.2 times, including a 2.5-fold growth in utilization for European consumers. I would like to note that the year 2020 saw Turkey, Greece, and North Macedonia ramp up their gas purchases from Gazprom.”
“The preliminary results are in for Gazprom’s core activities in the year 2020.
The Company fulfilled all of its obligations to consumers in Russia and abroad in a reliable manner.”
“TurkStream is a state-of-the-art, efficient and reliable gas pipeline that is in high demand by European consumers. The number of European countries receiving Russian gas via TurkStream has grown to six. Along with Bulgaria, Greece, North Macedonia and Romania, this opportunity is now available in Serbia and in Bosnia and Herzegovina.”
