Construction of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline is in full swing. As of today, 1,775 kilometers of the 2 strings are ready, which translates into 95 % of the overall length of Turkish Stream’s offshore section.
The landfall near the Russian town of Anapa is completed and the ongoing start-up operations will be finished in 2018. In addition, a receiving terminal is being constructed near the Turkish settlement of Kiyikoy.
Turkish Stream’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. The gas pipeline will come into operation before the end of 2019.
