The first stage of the undersea pipes that will transport the gas from Sakarya Gas Field, which is Turkey's largest natural gas discovery, to land has been brought to Filyos Port in Zonguldak.
The operations in the Sakarya Gas Field, which was the largest marine discoveries worldwide in 2020 continue day and night without any interruption.
The first pipe of the pipeline in the operation area has been laid and it is expected that the project will be completed by the first quarter of 2023.
Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Dönmez Tweeted the Transportation
Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Dönmez made a statement on his social media account about the pipes that will transfer the Black Sea gas from the sea to the land that have started coming to our Filyos Natural Gas Processing Facility.
Shipment of the underwater pipes that will carry the gas to the land from the point where the discovery was made has started.
The first phase of the pipes that will connect the open production facility on the seabed and the natural gas processing facility on land has been brought to Filyos Port. Pipes loaded on trucks are inspected by expert teams for damage control. After the controls, the pipes are brought to the area to be stacked.
20% of the Total Pipes Have Arrived
Pipes brought to the port makeup 20 percent of the planned 170-kilometer pipeline. It is planned that all of the pipes will be brought to the port in approximately 10 separate deliveries.
Experts believe that the pipeline laying process is expected to take approximately 5 months. After the completion of the pipeline, Turkey will be able to access its own natural gas resources.
Without a doubt, this will significantly contribute to the overall economy of the country and even the investors in different fields will benefit from this development.
