Turkish President announced on Friday that significant natural gas reserves have been found in the Black Sea.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at Istanbul’s Dolmabahce Palace “Turkey made the largest natural gas discovery in the Black Sea.”
Fatih, the drilling ship of the nation, found approximately 320 billion cubic meters of natural gas on July 20, Erdogan said.
In 2023 it added that Turkey was planned to allow public use of the discovered gas.
The news came after Erdogan revealed that he had promised “good news” for the nation this week.
The Fatih boat began boiling in the Black Sea Tuna-1 area on the 20th of July.
In Istanbul’s Haydarpasa harbor, Fatih’s 103-metre-length tower (338 feet) is demolished to allow the vessel to move safely under the Bosphore Strait Bridges, prior to heading north into the Black Sea.
On 29 May, the vessel sailed from Istanbul to the Port of Trabzon in North East Turkey for the Black Sea, reaching the reassembly destination on 6 June.
