The Turkish Petroleum Corporation (TPAO) announced that the country’s daily oil production exceeded 70,000 barrels following the new discoveries.
The NOC said in a statement posted on Twitter on Wednesday that the daily oil production after the recent discoveries amounted to 70,76 barrels.
It indicated that this amount is the highest in 32 years.
The statement stressed that the Turkish Petroleum Corporation is moving confidently towards producing 90,000 barrels per day, which is the target amount by the end of 2023, as part of efforts to ensure Turkey’s independence in the field of energy.
In early May, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced a new oil discovery with a production capacity of 100,000 barrels per day in Sirnak, southeast of the country.
It added, “I would like to announce new good news. We have discovered an oil field with a production capacity of 100,000 barrels per day in Cudi Gabar (a mountainous area in Sirnak).”
