underwater pipeline

On 20th October the deepest underwater pipeline was opened in Turkey. The purpose of this pipeline was to transport natural gas. The basic reason behind this was to make available for the community and make their problems solved. The first of the pipeline’s two strings are intended for Turkish consumers, while the second one is delivering gas to southern and southeastern Europe.

The Blue Stream project is a non-transit gas pipeline that runs from Russia through the Black Sea to Turkey and delivers 16 billion cubic meters that transport natural gas from Russia to Turkey. The tubing was provided by Blue Stream Pipeline B.V. a Netherlands-based joint venture between Russia’s Gazprom and Italy’s.

The Blue Stream Pipeline B.V. is the owner of the subsea section of the pipeline, including the Beregovaya compressor station, while Gazprom owns and operates the Russian onshore section of the pipeline and the Turkish onshore section is owned and operated by the Turkish energy company BOTAŞ. According to Gazprom, the gas pipeline was built with the intention of diversifying Russian gas supply routes to Turkey and avoiding third countries.
