Russia’s Gazprom company has increased the load on the Turkish Stream gas pipeline since the start of its operation by 2.2 times, and for European consumers by 2.5 times, head of the transnational energy company Alexey Miller said, TASS reports.
Exactly one year has passed since the launch of the Turkish Stream offshore gas pipeline. It reliably transports Russian gas across the Black Sea to consumers in Turkey and already six European countries: Bulgaria, Greece, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Since the gas pipeline’s inception, Gazprom has increased its loading by 2.2 times, including for European consumers - by 2.5 times, Miller noted.
He added that Turkey, Greece and North Macedonia last year increased the purchase of gas from Gazprom.
The design capacity of the Turkish Stream is 31.5 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The pipeline supplies gas to Turkey, as well as to the countries of Southern and Southeast Europe.
