Turkish Stream pumped the first billion cubic meters of gas

The Russian company Gazprom has stated that 1 billion cubic meters of gas have been delivered by Turkish Stream to Turkey and southern Europe since the the launch. It is reported by Hromadske.  

Gazprom supplied the first billion cubic meters of gas by the Turkish Stream gas pipeline. About 54% of this volume was delivered to the Turkish gas market, about 46% - to the Turkish-Bulgarian border”, Gazprom said.

The Turkish Stream gas pipeline has a length of 930 km. It runs along the bottom of the Black Sea to the coast of Turkey. The land part – 180 km, passes through the country to the borders with neighboring countries. The capacity of each line is 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas per year. The first line is intended for the supply of Russian gas to Turkish consumers, the second – for gas supply to the countries of Southern and Southeast Europe.

Serhiy Makogon said that Turkish Stream would reduce gas transit through Ukraine by 15 billion cubic meters.

It was previously reported that Putin had accused Bulgaria of deliberately delaying the construction of Turkish Stream.
