Turkey second-largest LNG market in Europe

18/10/2019 09:44 LNG


The development of liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure has made Turkey the second-largest market in Europe and seventh-largest in the world. The country imported approximately 7.7 billion cubic meters of LNG in the first seven months of the year.

The development of Turkey's natural gas infrastructure, including multinational pipeline projects, improvement of facilities for liquefied natural gas (LNG) and the diversification of suppliers, have led to a profound enlargement of the country's gas market. As a result, Turkey has become Europe's second-largest LNG market.


Reducing its dependence on pipeline gas, Turkey imported 11.3 billion cubic meters (bcm) of LNG last year, accounting for 22.5% of the total gas purchases totaling 50.3 billion cubic meters. From January to July this year, the country's LNG imports reached a record high at 7.7 bcm, according to the Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EMRA).
