The receiving terminal for the Turkish Stream gas pipeline is 95% ready
The construction of a receiving terminal for the Turkish Stream offshore gas pipeline reached 95% of the total workload.
This is stated in the message of the project company South Stream Transport BV, which is engaged in the construction of the highway.
It is noted that the beginning of gas transportation is planned before the end of 2019.
A reception terminal is being built near the village of Kiyikey in the Thrace region in western Turkey.
Earlier, Russian leader Vladimir Putin at a press conference with Serbian President Alexander Vučić noted Moscow’s readiness to extend the Turkish Stream through Europe.
In July, Viktor Nadein-Raevsky, senior researcher at IMEMO RAS, in an interview with FBA “Economics Today” praised the cooperation between Russia and Turkey. According to him, Ankara has significantly accelerated the resolution of all issues related to the construction of the Turkish Stream and the Akkuyu nuclear power plant.
