Turkey expects its energy imports to fall significantly following a major Black Sea natural gas find and more discoveries could be made in another area now being evaluated, Energy Minister Fatih Donmez said on Saturday.
“With the discovery, we expect a serious fall in imports. We have established the groundwork for our citizens to use natural gas at much more economic costs,” Donmez told reporters.
“There is a new area of 6,000 square kilometres ahead of us. The evaluation of our experts is that we may see similar structures there too,” he said in Istanbul.
