Blue Stream Delivers 100 Bcm of Gas to Turkey

Blue Stream gas pipeline supplied its 100th billion cubic meter of Russian natural gas to Turkey.

In 2013 gas supplies via Blue Stream had stood at 13.7 billion cubic meters of gas accounting for over a half of the total gas volume (26.7 billion cubic meters) exported by Gazprom to Turkey in 2013.

“For over 11 years Blue Stream has been an illustrative example of the efficiency and reliability of direct Russian gas supplies to European consumers. The project is the first offshore thoroughfare of such scale globally; it represents a great engineering achievement. Blue Stream made it possible to gain a unique experience in constructing and operating offshore gas pipelines, which can be put into practice as part of the Nord Stream and South Stream projects as well as the Dzhubga – Lazarevskoye – Sochi gas pipeline. Mostly due to Blue Stream, Russia became the undisputed world’s leader in terms of constructing cutting-edge gas transmission systems offshore and onshore. Nowadays Blue Stream is a guarantee of stable gas supplies to Turkey,” said Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee.

The 1,213-kilometer Blue Stream gas pipeline with the annual capacity of 16 billion cubic meters of gas was commissioned in December 2002 in order to directly supply gas to Turkey across the Black Sea.

Blue Stream supplements the existing gas transmission corridor running from Russia to Turkey via Ukraine, Moldavia, Romania and Bulgaria.
