One year since launch of TurkStream offshore gas pipeline

“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.”
