Turkey has the world’s largest natural gas reserves
Turkey is currently receiving congratulations from all over the world, why not meet? After all, Turkey has such a huge natural resource. Yes, Turkey has the world’s largest natural gas reserves ever, announced by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “We will start using this gas reserve by 2023,” he said.
This huge reserve of 320 billion cubic meters of natural gas found in the Black Sea has been discovered in a tuna-one well by a Turkish drilling ship called Fateh. This gas reserve is said to be the largest natural gas discovery in the history of Turkey. The president says he is expecting more natural gas reserves from the site, according to indications.
Turkey dug nine times deeper into the Mediterranean and the Black Sea with the ships Fateh and Yavuz and discovered huge reserves of gas. Turkish Finance Minister Berat Alberak called the discovery the beginning of a new era in Turkey because it would no longer have to depend on Russia, Iran and Azerbaijan for natural gas.
According to Turkish Energy Minister Fateh Donmez, the gas reserves were found 2,100 meters below sea level. He also said that his mission would not be over yet but 1400 meters deep excavations would be carried out at other places as data showed that there might be more gas reserves there. According to the US Geological Survey, the region’s Lavant Basin has 350 billion cubic meters of natural gas and 1.7 billion barrels of oil reserves.
Let us now tell you what is the Fateh Jahaz, through which this gas reserve was found. According to the information, the Turkish conquest ship was named after Fateh Sultan Mehmet, the sultan of the Ottoman Empire, who conquered Constantinople in 1453.
Further research by the ship began on July 20 this year, and President ordered the discovery of gas near the Greek island of Greece in the Eastern Mediterranean, after which Greece, Cyprus and the European Union came under Turkish scrutiny.
Tensions with France also led to an increase in the military presence in the region. Not only that, the European Union had asked Turkey to stop the research but the President of Turkey did not bow down to anyone and continued the research and succeeded. Turkey is now receiving congratulations from many major countries around the world for this research.
