Internal inspection is carried out by the Smart Pipeline Inspection Gauges (PIGs) every few years to identify any corrosion, mechanical defects, or slips. There are PIG launchers and traps at the Landfall Facilities in Russia and Turkey to launch and catch these PIGs. Sent from the PIG launchers in Russia, these smart PIGs will flow with the natural gas along the pipeline and reach the traps in Turkey.
TurkStream consists of the Anapa Landfall Facility, the offshore pipelines and the Kiyikoy Receiving Terminal.
