PROJECT

The TurkStream Pipeline

TurkStream starts on the Russian coast near the town of Anapa and runs over 930 km through the Black Sea to come ashore in the Thrace region of Turkey

TurkStream directly connects the large gas reserves in Russia to the Turkish gas transportation network, to provide reliable energy supplies for Turkey, south and southeast Europe.

The offshore component of the system consists of two parallel pipelines running through the Black Sea. The pipelines enter the water near Anapa, on the Russian coast, and come ashore on the Turkish coast in the Thrace region, near the town of Kiyikoy.

From the receiving terminal in Kiyikoy, one of the two underground onshore pipelines will connect to the existing Turkish gas network at Luleburgaz. The other pipeline will continue to the Turkish-European border, where it ends.

Technology

TurkStream is a project that advances the technical boundaries of the industry: TurkStream is the first system of 81-centimeter diameter to be laid at depths of over 2 kilometres.

The two offshore pipelines are made up of thousands of individual pipe joints of 12 meters in length.

Benefits

The TurkStream Project not only ensures the reliability of energy supplies to Turkey and Europe, but also contributes to Turkey’s economic development through the resources it uses for the construction of the project. In addition, TurkStream supports the development of the Kiyikoy area via local social investments.
