TurkStream's offshore section 50 pct done

The offshore section of TurkStream, an export gas pipeline stretching from Russia to Turkey across the Black Sea, reached 50 percent completion earlier this week. 

Over 930 kilometers of the pipeline have been laid in total on the seabed of the Black Sea, spread across two strings, the project’s statement reads.

Pioneering Spirit, the vessel responsible for the deep-water sections of the pipeline, passed kilometer point 706 this morning for the first line.

For the second line, 224 kilometers were installed in 2017.

The first and second strings of TurkStream, a project being planned and developed by Gazprom, will have the throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters each.

TurkStream’s offshore section will run over 900 kilometers from the Russkaya CS near Anapa across the Black Sea to the Turkish seaboard, with an onshore string for gas transit to be laid up to Turkey’s border with neighboring countries.

Earlier in January, South Stream Transport, started the construction of the receiving terminal of the TurkStream offshore gas pipeline. With the start of the onshore construction in Turkey, the project is now being implemented in three construction areas, onshore Russia, onshore Turkey and offshore in the Black Sea.
