Gazprom suspends Blue Stream and Turkish Stream for prevention

Gazprom plans to halt gas supplies to Turkey through the Blue Stream pipeline from 13 May to 19 May, due to preventive activities, TASS reported.
Technical support for the Turkish Stream pipeline is expected between June 23rd and 28th, Bulgartransgaz said in a news release.

“ Blue Stream” delivers gas from Russia to Turkey through the Black Sea Aquatorium, passing through third countries. The facility is 1213 km long and a project capacity of 16 billion cubic meters per year. The pipeline has been in operation since 2002, BTA added.

The Turkish Stream, connecting the two countries directly, began on 1 January 2020, TASS recalls.
