Erdoğan: Turkey discovers 135 bcm more natural gas in Black Sea
Turkey has discovered 135 billion cubic meters (bcm) of additional natural gas in the southern Black Sea, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told an opening ceremony in the Black Sea province of Zonguldak on Friday.
He also added that he expected further “good news” to come from the region.
Last year, Turkey's first national drillship Fatih discovered 405 billion cubic meters (bcm) of natural gas in the country's biggest discovery.
The Kanuni vessel is completing exploratory tests at the Turkali-2 well, while the Fatih drillship is drilling in Turkali-3 well, both in the Sakarya field.
Natural gas production from the field is expected to begin in 2023. (ILKHA)
