PROJECT

The TurkStream Pipeline

TurkStream will start on the Russian coast near the town of Anapa and run over 930 km through the Black Sea to come ashore in the Thrace region of Turkey

TurkStream will directly connect the large gas reserves in Russia to the Turkish gas transportation network, to provide reliable energy supplies for Turkey, south and south-east Europe.

The offshore component of the system will be constructed by South Stream Transport B.V. The offshore pipeline will consist of two parallel pipelines running through the Black Sea. The pipelines will enter the water near Anapa, on the Russian coast, and come ashore on the Turkish coast some 100 kilometres west of Istanbul, near the village of Kiyikoy.

From Kiyikoy, an underground pipeline will be developed connecting TurkStream to the existing network at Luleburgaz. The route will continue from there to its end point at the Turkish-European border.

Technology

TurkStream is a project that pushes industry boundaries from a technical perspective: TurkStream will be the first 32-inch sized system to be laid at depths of over 2 kilometres.

Each of the two offshore pipelines is made up of thousands of individual pipe joints of 12 meters in length.

Benefits

The project will benefit economies and communities through sourcing for construction and social investments.
