Turkish Stream: Giant project of strategic partnership in energy

The TurkStream natural gas pipeline was built to transport Russian natural gas to Europe via Turkey.

Its a Gazprom-implemented international export gas pipeline project from the Anapa district of the Krasnodar Territory of Russia under the Black Sea to the European part of Turkey.

On the border of Turkey with the neighboring countries of Europe it is planned to build a gas hub through which the gas will be sent to the EU countries, which will independently build the infrastructure for receiving gas on their territory.

The Turkish stream has become a forced, but rather successful alternative to the South Stream, which Gazprom did not manage to realize for political reasons.
And although South Stream, it would seem, has already sunk into oblivion, its «legacy» lives on.

This is the 2nd - transit - branch of the Turkish Stream for the countries of southern and southeastern Europe, since 2 main options were considered - through Bulgaria and Serbia or through Greece and Italy.

The pipelaying for TurkStream took 15 months and was completed ahead of schedule in November 2018.
The construction of the receiving terminal near the Kiyikoy settlement in Turkey was finished in 2019.

Russia and Turkey launched the TurkStream gas pipeline on 8 January 2020, in a ceremony attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
