He noted that Turkey will commence purchasing natural gas in the amount of 6 billion cubic meters annually starting from late June 2020.
We transported 3.08 billion cubic meters of natural gas to Turkey by the end of October. Turkey will begin to buy natural gas in the amount of 6 billion cubic meters annually starting from late June 2020.
Saying TANAP is the most important part of the Southern Gas Corridor project S. Duzyol noted that, some time is required to complete the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) project.
