Russia actually lost the gas market of Turkey

The largest Russian gas supplier, Gazprom, has virtually lost the Turkish market. Until recently, Ankara was Moscow's main gas partner after Berlin, but this year fuel supplies to the Republic of Turkey from Russia have almost completely stopped.

According to the customs service, only 2 million cubic meters of gas were transported to Turkey in June, which is more than a thousand times less than in January 2020, and almost 600 times less than in June 2019. The market of this country accounted for about 0,01 percent of Gazprom's export supplies, amounting to 11 billion cubic meters. Fuel from Russia is gradually being replaced by raw materials from Azerbaijan - in March it became the largest gas supplier to Turkey.

Due to the lack of demand, Gazprom has to shut down its pipelines. So, in May, the Blue Stream, built in the early 2000s, was suspended. The reason was then called scheduled repair work, which was supposed to last two weeks. However, at the end of July, the pipeline was still empty.

On July 27, Turkish Stream was shut down for the second time in two months. The official reason is the same - the repair of gas pipes.

The Russian Federation has actually lost the Turkish gas market. Ankara will increase the volume of purchases of liquefied fuel on the spot market, Reuters reported. Meanwhile, Russia is preparing for a deeper decline in gas sales to Turkey.

      Sales in Europe fell. You see, a crisis that no one predicted. Plus the stupid decision to preserve transit, which you, by the way, so zealously supported. So the minus was absolutely correct ...

      And who said that managers should lose in salaries and bonuses? There was no such condition in the work of state capitalism.

    I constantly talk about the level of education of Putin and his entourage. And against the background of such mediocrity, Putin shines in all its glory! And there are no guilty ones!

      Especially against your background, a third-rate troll. wassat Well, how can a complete mediocrity and stupidity appoint American presidents, expel Britain from the EU, ride Buryat armored hooves across Ukraine - and NOBODY can cope with him. The torturers were set up, sanctions were imposed on their whole ass, they were hysterical on TV - and Putin, if only henna ... He rules the world, and does not blow his mustache.

        You really do not wishful thinking ... not a single decree is being carried out in their own country, so others will fulfill the wishes of the mummer doll of 2008 for the people ... All the billions received from the RF raw materials go to the West, support the foreign economy , not Russian ... So in all the current world events, Russia looks more like a barge on a leash, with a comprador team of the Russian government ...

    It is unlikely that the economy here. Erdogan is still trying to act like a first-class player on the world stage. The Russian Federation supports Haftar and Armenia (moderately), and Turkey supports Azerbaijan and the PNS. In Syria, their interests do not coincide either. Therefore, Erdogan believes that he can punish and bend Putin. I have already forgotten how he apologized and how Putin pulled him out of the abyss by the scruff of the neck during the coup. The eastern mentality is like that, a lot of show-offs, and the mind is somewhere in the background. But Putin will have more trump cards. Now he has other problems, on a larger scale. But nothing, will find the time and opportunities and Erdogan will come running to apologize again, screeching. Only, next time the conditions will be tougher.

    The author is not aware that the Turkish Stream works for the West of Turkey and Europe, where Bulgaria is playing for time as much as it can? And the main supplies to Turkey go through the Blue Stream, which has no competitors.
