Importance of Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline Project for Executing Southern Gas Corridor 2012 Frankfurt Gas Forum Germany 28 November 2012
Stand Points of the Project In December 2011, Turkey and Azerbaijan have signed an agreement for a new gas pipeline project that will connect Turkey's east and west, carrying Azerbaijani gas to Europe. The new pipeline, named the Trans- Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline, is being designed by the Azerbaijani state-owned oil company SOCAR The inter-governmental agreement between the Government of the Republic of Turkey and the Government of the Republic of Azerbaijan, has been signed on Tuesday, June 26th 2012 in Istanbul with broad participation. Strategic Alliance Between Azerbaijan and Turkey
Security Supply of Europe: Source, route and volume. Shahdeniz sources of Azerbaijan Shahdeniz 2, Upsheron, Ümid and Babek field Security Supply of Turkey: Source, volume and national network. Stand Points of the Project
The Southern Gas Corridor Southern Gas Corridor is needed for the independence of European Union Energy Security. Decreased gas production and increased demand pushes Europe to pay more importance to develop Southern Gas Corridor. For this reason, Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline Project (TANAP) is playing crucial role on the European Energy Security. Diversification of energy supply routes and provision of energy security in the region and beyond are closely interrelated, it is important to move forward and achieve new results in the implementation of plans and projects that are drew up in the last few years.
Natural Gas Supply-Demand Projections of Europe Most possible scenario- Blue one- … Jeroen de Joode, European gas market developments in different energy transition scenarios
Natural Gas Resources of Azerbaijan Reserves of Absheron, Umid, Babek, and Nakhchivan: 1.25 tcm of gas and more than 200 mln. tons of condensate* Shah-deniz Reserves: 1.2 tcm gas, 240 mln. Tons condensate Shah Deniz-1; Plateu production 9 bcma Shah Deniz-2; Plateu production 16 bcma *Ilham Nasirov, Deputy General Manager Investment Division, SOCAR
Natural Gas Supply-Demand Projection of Turkey High grow rates, no new contracts case.
