Moscow, January 28 - Neftegaz.RU. Supplies of Russian gas via the undersea Blue Stream gas pipeline to Turkey reached a record high in 2021, Gazprom Export said, citing rising demand.

Last year, Gazprom supplied 15.98 bcm via Blue Stream.
It is the best annual result since the start of its operation in 2003.

Turkey is one of the main buyers of Russian natural gas.
Today, the countries are directly linked by the Blue Stream and Turkish Stream gas pipelines.

The growth in supplies through the Blue Stream pipeline coincided with a record gas consumption in Turkey.
According to preliminary data, in 2021 it amounted to around 61 bcm.

Elena Burmistrova, Director General of Gazprom Export, said:
  • For Gazprom, Blue Stream was the first offshore gas pipeline directly connecting us with a large export market
  • Almost 2 decades later, we see that this approach was fully right
  • The record results of Blue Stream make us optimistic and prove the right focus on direct deliveries to our customers via offshore gas pipelines
The Blue Stream gas pipeline is designed to deliver Russian natural gas to Turkey across the Black Sea bypassing 3rd countries.
Its Russia’s 1st pipeline directly connecting its gas fields with a major gas-consuming country.
The Blue Stream total length amounts to 1,213 km.
The pipeline was commissioned in December 2002.

Russian-Turkish cooperation in the gas sector dates back to 1984 when the Governments of the Turkish Republic and the Soviet Union signed the Agreement on natural gas supplies to Turkey.
