Introducing gas to the pipeline system is a significant step towards the start of actual gas deliveries to Turkey and South-Eastern Europe through the newly developed offshore pipeline system.

Commercial gas flow through TurkStream is planned to start by the end of 2019.

The gas that was injected into the TurkStream system is delivered through the Gazprom Unified Gas Supply System.

The required pressure to fill the TurkStream system is generated by the Russkaya Compressor Station located near the city of Anapa on the Russian Black Sea coast.

The pipelines will be filled with natural gas from Anapa landfall facility all the way to the Receiving Terminal located near the town of Kıyıköy on the Turkish Black Sea coast.
