Construction of the TurkStream Offshore Gas Pipeline Project's gas-receiving terminal at Kıyıköy – Turkey's main onshore section – is 95% complete, the project company announced Wednesday.

All works are on schedule and the first gas is expected to flow by the end of 2019, the company said in a statement.


Earlier last month, Gazprom said the landfall facilities in Russia are 99% completed. Both offshore pipelines connecting the two shores are also complete.


TurkStream will have the capacity to transit 31.5 billion cubic meters (bcm) of gas per year, which is equal to the energy demand of 15 million homes, according to the company.
