The Turkish Energy Minister inspects the work of extracting gas


Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Donmez toured the Turkish gas field discovered in the Black Sea.

This visit comes within the framework of preparing to pump the gas discovered in the Black Sea into the local network, with a ceremony that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will attend on April 20.

Two thousand and 500 people work at sea and 8 thousand on land in order to deliver the discovered gas to the Turkish mainland.


Later, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Turkish Petroleum Company, Melih Khan Belkin, briefed the minister about the preparations from the air.

In previous statements, Belkin said on Friday that the company aims to make available the natural gas discovered in the Black Sea for domestic use, starting from mid-May.
