Turkey plans to hold a conference in February to discuss the gas hub project

Turkey plans to hold a conference in Istanbul in February to discuss the gas hub project proposed by Russia, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Fatih Donmez said.

Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalın earlier said his country could become not only a gas transit country, but also a country where the market is formed. Presidents of Russia and Turkey Vladimir Putin and Tayyip Erdogan previously instructed to work in detail and quickly on the issue of creating a gas hub, through which Russia, in particular, could move gas transit from the Nord Streams to the Black Sea region and Turkey. Erdogan also believes that Europe could receive Russian gas through Turkey.

“At this conference, we plan to discuss with potential suppliers this project (gas hub), the creation of a market. You know, the market should be such that there are no losers, everyone was profitable, all these details should be discussed,” Donmez said in an interview with 24tv.

When asked when the conference is planned, Minister Donmez said that presumably in February in Istanbul.
