Gazprom, Turkey Consider Possible Increase in Blue Stream Capacity

Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee and Taner Yildiz, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of the Republic of Turkey met in Ankara where they addressed the cooperation deepening between Gazprom and Turkey in the gas sector.

In particular, they considered the possibility of increasing the capacity of the Blue Stream gas pipeline from 16 to 19 billion cubic meters of gas a year. The parties agreed to examine this issue in detail. It was pointed out that the increase in capacity would not require laying additional strings of Blue Stream,” Gazprom said in a statement.

Blue Stream conveys over 50 per cent of all the Russian natural gas purchased by the Republic of Turkey. While securing uninterrupted gas supplies to Turkish consumers, the gas pipeline is also crucially important when additional gas volumes are urgently needed to replenish gas deficiency in case of emergency.
