Turkey expects a solid discount on gas from Russia after the found reserves in the Black Sea

Turkish Minister of Finance and Treasury Berat Albayrak said that after Turkey finds a new natural gas field in the Black Sea, relations between Ankara and Moscow may be strengthened. He expressed this opinion in an interview with the Turkish television channel NTV.

According to Albayrak, economic cooperation between the two countries will be able to reach a new level. The Russian Federation has long been a reliable supplier of "blue fuel" to Turkey, therefore, in the new situation, the countries may become even closer to each other.

Thanks to the new reserves, the cost of our gas will be lower - this will affect both our people and the solid discount on gas from Russia, which we really count on

- the minister noted.

The discovery of large gas deposits is very important for the Turkish economy - 99 percent of the fuel is supplied to Turkey from other countries. The new field will be able to strengthen the positions of the local gas companies TPAO and BOTAS. According to Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Turkey will be able to supply this gas to European countries. The country is expected to start extracting fuel from this field in 2023. The value of the found reserves is estimated by economists at about $ 80 billion.

    Sounds like bad trolling and trying to bluff. In fact, the price on the market is formed somewhat differently, first the promised cubic meters must be pumped from the Turkish well. And a discount is a completely different political and economic agreement.

    That is, Russia should finance a Turkish well, in which it is not known what and how much there is and whether there will be at all?

    this will affect ... a solid discount on gas from Russia, which we really count on

    - this is the real reason for all this information hype. As they were petty swindlers, they remained. Always trying to find someone worse than themselves.
    The Germans have already answered them: "It is not enough to find, it is still necessary to get it!"
    For three years, as Khoja Nasreddin said: "Either the donkey speaks, or the padishah dies."

    These are oriental traditions.
    4 years of news from Turkey, and 4 years of the Turks bargaining for gas and oil whenever possible.

    Russia is counting on a solid discount on tomatoes from Turkey after laying a new greenhouse in Crimea.
