Construction of the receiving terminal for the TurkStream offshore gas pipeline, stretching across the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey, has reached 95%.
All works are in line with the schedule, and the first gas is expected to flow by the end of 2019, the company informed.
The TurkStream receiving terminal is realized near the town of Kiyiköy in the Turkish Thrace region.
Nearshore works for the TurkStream pipeline near Kiyiköy started in July 2018.
When operational, the receiving terminal will measure gas flow, temperature, pressure and composition, before the gas is fed into the Turkish gas grid.
The first line of the TurkStream gas pipeline is intended for the Turkish consumers, while the second line is designated for the Southern and South-Eastern Europe.
TurkStream will have the capacity to transit 31.5 billion cubic meters of gas per year, which is equal to the energy demand of 15 million homes.
