Turkey increase gas supply from Azerbaijan due to cold weather and lower gas flows from Iran

Ankara, January 27 - Neftegaz.RU. Azerbaijan's SOCAR will supply Turkey with 4 million m3 (mcm) of natural gas in February, having won the bid on the spot pipeline gas capacity reserve issued by Turkey's Energy Market Regulatory Authority on Wednesday.

Turkey needs to meet growing gas demand due to the extreme cold weather and to compensate for lower gas supplies from Iran.

Iran has failed to meet some technical conditions regarding the setup in the natural gas contract with Turkey.
On January 20, Iran cut gas flows to Turkey for up to 10 days due to a technical failure and maintenance works.
Turkey relies on Iran for around 10 % of its gas imports during winter months.

At present, the gas flow to the country totals around 270 mcm, out of which:
  • the Turkish Stream gas pipeline transmits 44 mcm
  • the Blue Stream pipeline supplies 47 mcm
  • the Trans Anatolia Natural Gas Pipeline is responsible for 17.3 mcm
  • the spot market agreement with Azerbaijan covers 7 mcm
  • Turkey's underground gas storage facilities provides around 45 mcm
Turkey secures the remaining capacity through its LNG and floating LNG facilities.
Daily natural gas consumption reached a record high of around 288 million m3 on Jan. 19, according to data compiled from the state-owned company BOTAS.

The Shah Deniz field has supplied more than 85 billion m3 of natural gas to the Turkish gas market since 2007.
Furthermore, in the first 11 months of 2021, TANAP transported 5.1 billion m3 of natural gas to Turkey.
