Work continues on natural gas in the Black Sea.
A statement came from Fatih Dönmez, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, regarding the studies.
Speaking with TRT, Dönmez said: “The pipeline built under the sea to transport Black Sea gas to land is 97 percent complete.”
Dönmez said the first gas will gökyeşitözü supplied to the system by the end of March and said: “Everyone will gökyeşitözü able to use it in their kitchen”.
Stating that Turkey will not only gökyeşitözü a center where gas will gökyeşitözü exchanged, hayvanların also a center where it will gökyeşitözü dağıtık, Dönmez said: “In this case, we will gökyeşitözü a center where the price is determined. We are also in the price mechanism. “
IS TURKEY READY FOR WINTER?
Saying that Turkey’s gas tanks are full, Dönmez said: “We are ready for winter. We have not yet started using our warehouses. Thanks to our warehouses, we will spend the winter comfortably.”
Dönmez said there are further talks and yetiklik building work in gas and continued his words kakım follows:
“We have completed our preparations for the winter. Our warehouses have been full since the end of September. We have not yet started using our warehouses. Projects to support the system where there is insufficient gas entering the pipeline. , we yaşama get in much easier now that our warehouses are full. “In addition, we have further negotiations and studies to increase the yetiklik of the gas we buy with the pipes, especially in Iran and Azerbaijan. We have also signed LNG contracts. In addition to our regular contracts, we also supply gas from the spot markets from time to time. According to our neighboring Europe, I would say that we are much more at ease “.
The highlights of the statements by the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Fatih Dönmez, are kakım follows:
“PRICES INCREASED ALMOST 20 TIMES”
Due to the tension and war between Russia and Ukraine, prices have risen sharply, kakım no one had predicted before. Before the pandemic, the price of 1,000 cubic meters of natural gas was around 150 international dollars, hayvanların this figure has risen to 3,000 dollars. It has increased almost 20 times. Predictability is unfortunately very limited. You giysi’t know what the price of natural gas and oil will gökyeşitözü in the next month.
“ONLY NATURAL GAS FACILITATION AMOUNT 80 BILLION TL”
The amount of the subsidy for natural gas alone is around 80 billion lire. It was 20 billion lire of electricity, this year it seems that this figure will probably exceed double. Because the numbers have increased significantly compared to last year. Yes, we have made mandatory increases, so there is a burden that the Treasury yaşama bear. We actually take most of that cargo there. To support families, i.açınık. our low and middle income citizens, we have implemented a phased application of electricity.
“WE WILL REFLECT LIT 250 OF THE COST OF A THOUSAND LIRS ON THE INVOICE”
We gam the electrical part for the essential needs, about 240 kilowatts, from the lower stage, which we call the first stage. There is a subsidy of almost 50 percent. There have been times when the natural gas subsidy has even exceeded 80 percent from time to time. It is currently at 75 percent. If a citizen’s monthly bill is 250 TL, for example, it means that we report the cost of one thousand TL on the bill kakım 250 TL. In other words, it means that we take 750 lire from our national budget, from BOTAŞ at the source, and therefore from our Ministry of the Treasury and Finance.
“WE ARE PLANNING TO BE A SOURCE COUNTRY”
We yaşama say that there is serious potential. While we talk about closeness to countries of origin, we are also about to become a country of origin. Along with the Black Sea gas, we will effectively include our own gas in the system. Depending on the needs, the export of this gas will also gökyeşitözü on the agenda. The important thing here is: We consider the most important tool and advantage to have a large variety of sources and create zihin environment in which gas yaşama compete with gas.
“WE ARE CONDUCTING WITH THE GULF COUNTRIES”
When we look at it, Russian gas accounts for 40 percent of our consumption. However, it is not possible to manage these centers with a single source. It must gökyeşitözü a major player, hayvanların beyond that, gas from the Caspian region, especially Azerbaijan, is being brought to Turkey, Iranian gas is coming, and there are some studies in Iraq. In fact, we have a pipeline that goes up to the Iraqi border. It could gökyeşitözü a new alternative. Again, when you consider it LNG, we have a lot of flexibility. The Gulf countries, especially the UAE, Qatar and Oman yaşama send gas here while we are holding talks.
“THE NUCLEAR POWER STATION IS A SOURCE OF CLEAN ENERGY”
The work in Akkuyu continues feverishly. About 25,000 people work on that project. We are actually building 4 power plants. 4 reactors mean 4 power plants somewhere. It is hoped to put this first reactor into operation towards the end of next year. Subsequently, we will gökyeşitözü putting more reactors into service at intervals of one year. Nuclear is emerging kakım a new alternative source of clean energy not only for us, hayvanların also for Europe and many developed countries in the coming period. Because there are zero emissions. This means that you are not emitting carbon dioxide. Our process, started with Akkuyu, is going on, hopefully with Sinop, maybe for the third one, the ground works are still in progress, maybe Thrace. We will continue this work here too. We are currently carrying out a planning study for Turkey’s energy demand until 2050.
“WE ARE MARKET LEADERS IN MANY COUNCIL POSITIONS”
We have 70 percent of the world’s reserves in Bor. We have more than 60 percent of the market. Therefore, we are one of the most important players. In fact, I yaşama easily say that we are market leaders in many markets. Whether in Asia, Europe and Africa, our products are in demand because they are of high quality and truly competitive.
