Amsterdam, 29.06.2021

Gas transmission through both offshore lines of TurkStream has started again following the completion of planned annual maintenance works.

The shutdown was planned to last until 29 June, but works were completed ahead of schedule. Gas flow through Line 1 was resumed on Monday 28 June at 7:00 PM (MSK) and through Line 2 at 6:00 PM.


TurkStream is the project for a gas pipeline stretching across the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey and Europe, comprising of two parallel lines. Each line has a throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

While the first line of Turkstream provides natural gas to the Turkish market, the second line reaches Turkish-Bulgarian border for further transport of gas to Europe.

Commercial gas supply through the gas pipeline started on 1 January 2020. On 8 January 2020, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan officially launched TurkStream at an opening ceremony in Istanbul.
