Turkey’s Natural Gas Production To Be Doubled

Lizbon Büyükelçiliği 05.10.2009

Efforts are underway to finish the construction of the Turkish Petroleum Corporation's (TPAO) natural gas production and drilling platform in Romania which will double Turkey's natural gas production. A Romanian company is constructing the giant platform in a dockyard for TPAO in Constanza, on the Black Sea coast.

The two-story platform will start extracting natural gas off the shores of Turkey's Black Sea town of Akcakoca, first discovered in 2003. Metin Kilci, Undersecretary for the Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, told reporters after visiting the dockyard that Turkey's natural gas production will be doubled after the completion of the platform.

The platform, planned to go into service by the end of 2010, will cost USD 100 million. The first story of the platform will be used for natural gas production, while the second story will be used for exploration.
