Gazprom makes a leap in Turkish market

 

Referans - Russian energy giant Gazprom is making serious efforts to expand its presence in the Turkish energy market, according to a strategy director of the company. The group has designated four goals – electricity, natural gas import, natural gas storage and distribution – but will initially focus on the first three, said Dietmar Schulz-Oral, Strategy Director at Gazprom Germania, which owns a 71 percent share in Turkey’s Bosphorus Gas.

 

Speaking at a meeting on Thursday, Schulz-Oral said talks are underway with the Calik Group on the Lake Tuz Underground Natural Gas Storage Facility. Working groups have also been formed with Aksa, Enerjisa and Akenerji to deal with several projects, he added.
