Currently, both strings of TurkStream, from the onshore facilities near Anapa (on Russiaʼs Black Sea coast) to the receiving terminal on the Turkish coast near the Kiyikoy settlement, are filled with gas.
The Russkaya Compressor Station and the landfall section in Russia are ready for operation, Gazprom said in its statement. Meanwhile, start-up and commissioning operations are coming to a close at the receiving terminal in Turkey.
The TurkStream gas pipeline will stretch across the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey and on to Turkey’s border with neighboring countries.
The first string of TurkStream is intended for Turkish consumers, while the second string will deliver gas to southern and southeastern Europe. Each string will have a throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas per year, lngworldnews.com says
