Turkiye, together with Azerbaijan, continues efforts to meet
demands for gas in Moldova, Romania, and Bulgaria, Turkish Foreign
Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said at a joint press conference with
Moldovan Foreign Minister Nicu Popescu, Azernews reports.
The minister noted that energy and food security issues are on
the agenda of the global community over the war in Ukraine.
'We must cooperate in the energy sector. There is a need for
natural gas in countries such as Romania, Moldova, and Bulgaria.
Turkiye, together with Azerbaijan, continues efforts to meet this
demand,' he said.
With the completion of the TAP (Trans-Adriatic Pipeline)
construction on December 31, 2020, Azerbaijan began commercial gas
supplies to Europe via the Southern Gas Corridor. The SGC is an
initiative of the European Commission for a natural gas supply
route from the Caspian and Middle Eastern regions to Europe. The
route from Azerbaijan to Europe consists of the South Caucasus
Pipeline, TANAP, and TAP.
Last year, TAP transported 8.1 billion cubic meters of gas to
Europe. In 2023, Azerbaijan plans to increase gas supplies to
Europe to 11 billion cubic meters. As of 2022, Azerbaijan has
exported 9.3 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe in the first ten
months and is expected to supply 11.5 billion cubic meters of gas
to Europe by the end of the year.
