Turkey will not face energy crisis

Nov 12, 2007 01:00 AM

Turkish Pipeline Corporation (BOTAS) General Manager Saltuk Duzyol has said Turkey will not face any scarcity in natural gas this winter thanks to recently built natural gas storage facilities and new supplier countries.
Duzyol said they had more precautions in place than in previous years vis-a-vis natural gas consumption in the winter, including an underground storage facility in Silivri.

"Around 80 % of total natural gas is consumed to the west of Ankara," Duzyol said, adding they had built new pipelines in the region west of Ankara and had begun to import gas from Azerbaijan.
About the liberalization of energy markets, Duzyol said Turkey's energy markets still had potential for growth. Instead of reducing BOTAS’s capacity, BOTAS’s share must be reduced by allowing new players to gradually import energy, increasing the energy market's volume.
