BAKU, Azerbaijan, Jan.26
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
SOCAR Enerji Ticaret AŞ will bring 4 million cubic meters of spot pipe gas per day from Turkgozu entry point in Ardahan in February, Trend reports with reference to Turkish media.
Turkey currently imports 44 million cubic meters of gas per day via the TurkStream pipeline and 47 million cubic meters per day via Blue Stream.
On the other hand, 17.3 million cubic meters of gas at full capacity per day is provided through the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline.
On January 20 Iran cut gas flows to Turkey for up to 10 days due to a technical failure and maintenance works.
Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Dönmez has said that Iran has failed to meet some technical conditions regarding the setup in the natural gas contract with Turkey. Turkey relies on Iran for around 10 percent of its gas imports during winter months.
The Energy and Natural Resources Ministry has warned that businesses would suffer electricity outages as a result.
