Turkey may drill more boreholes in its search for gas in the eastern Mediterranean, Energy Minister said, an area where its search and drilling operations led to a standoff with Greece and Cyprus last year. If the gas can be commercially extracted, the discovery could transform Turkey’s dependence on Russia, Iran and Azerbaijan for energy imports.

Turkey signals new natural gas discovery in Black Sea. The field is expected to gradually increase to reach a production plateau of around 15 bcm as of 2025, which is sufficient to meet 30% of the nation’s annual gas demand. The reserve is expected to lessen the country’s dependence on Russia, Iran and Azerbaijan for energy imports.
