Turkey predicts when Russia will be able to dictate gas prices again

The Turkish leadership really wants to create its own gas hub in order to increase not so much its own security or generate income, but for the sake of increasing influence in the region and Europe, whose energy appetites will only grow. But the creation of such a hub, which consists in a huge infrastructure development and expansion of capacities, will take quite a long time, even if Russia's assistance with raw materials and technology will turn out to be significant.

According to Turkish experts, the creation of something like a hub, and in such a configuration that Ankara dreams of, will take at least three years. After that, Turkey, and through it Russia, will be able to dictate prices in the region and the EU. Turkish industry specialist Ozkan Nesimoglu speaks about this.

According to him, even with the colossal support of the state and Moscow, there are still many technical and legal issues. At least three or even four years is needed to settle everything, the expert believes.

But, most importantly, there is no certainty that international buyers will start purchasing gas.

the expert warns.

The energy and industry services market in Turkey, like many others, needs to be liberalized and legal issues need to be resolved at the highest level. Neither the Russian side, nor, in particular, "Gazprom" has not yet provided an estimate of the costs, although everyone is talking only about profit. In other words, so far the hub is only Ankara's bright dream, nothing more.

    In other words, so far the hub is only Ankara's bright dream, nothing more.

    And it doesn't matter. The idea of ​​creating a gas hub in Turkey and the initial movements towards the implementation of this idea are today an important policy tool.
    Erdogan has elections in June this year. And he will be supported in every possible way by Russia, Iran, the Arabs ...
    The situation is very complicated and we do not need to introduce new unknown (or vice versa, well-known, but not needed) players into the layouts.
    Hence Erdogan's participation in the grain deal, his active peacekeeping activities in Ukraine, the nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, raids on the Greeks (a very popular position inside Turkey), suddenly discovered oil and gas fields, the launch of the construction of the 4th power unit of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant ...
    What will be real there, after June, no one will be interested.

      That's it. Everything will depend on the elections in June, and America seems to be on the alert. Turkey is a country where everything can turn upside down. History has proven this time and again.
