EIA in accordance with Russian Legislation

The TurkStream pipeline will start on the Russian coast near Anapa and runs through the Black Sea for nearly 230 km in Russian waters before crossing over into the Exclusive Economic Zone of Turkey.

Pipelines are a safe, convenient and efficient way to transport natural gas from source to destination. When fully operational, TurkStrem will offer a reliable energy supply for Turkey and the wider region by delivering 63 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually.

The Russian sector of the pipeline is being developed entirely in line with national permitting requirements to ensure that both the onshore and offshore sections of the Project are assessed from an environmental perspective.

Available data

The Project additionally benefits from the data available from the extensive surveying and approved EIA, and Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) in accordance with international financing standards, conducted for the South Stream Offshore Gas Pipeline project. Communities in the Anapa region near the landfall, along with NGOs and other interest groups, were engaged with as part of these assessments and will continue to be informed and consulted about the new Project as it enters into the Construction Phase.

With a thorough design and assessment process, the Project seeks to minimize any impacts on the environment and put in place mitigation measures to support its safe implementation.
