Turkmenistan Seeks Gas Exports to Europe via Azerbaijan, Turkey

TANAP will start construction work on pipelines across the Caspian to Azerbaijan in early 2015. Turkmen gas is expected to reach Turkey by 2018 and Europe in 2019.

Turkmenistan has expressed its interest in exporting natural gas to Europe, and Turkey's state owned TANAP may prove to be the solution for this.

Speaking at the Petrol-Gas Summit in Istanbul, the head of the Turkish Energy Ministry's Transit Petrol Pipelines Office, Reha Muratoglu, said that he believes the pumping of Turkmen gas to Europe via TANAP pipelines across the Caspian Sea has now become likely.

However, Sohbet Karbuz of the Mediterranean Energy Observatory said that Turkmenistan is already pumping 65 million cubic meters of gas to China, adding that the US is also pushing for a pipeline between India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan. This, he said, would make it difficult for Turkmenistan to pump gas to TANAP.
