Russia reportedly proposed signing a memorandum on the onshore construction of the TurkStream natural gas pipeline project between its state-owned natural gas giant Gazprom and Turkey this week.

The memorandum is expected to be signed in November. According to the draft MOU, Turkey is expected to provide Russia with the necessary permits for the construction as soon as practical.

The TurkStream is a transit-free export gas pipeline, which will not only stretch across the Black Sea from Russia to Turkey but will further extend to Turkey’s border with neighboring countries.

It will carry Russian gas to Turkey with the first of its two lines, while the second line of the project will carry Russian gas to southern and southeastern Europe.

TurkStream will directly connect the large gas reserves in Russia to the Turkish gas transportation network, to provide reliable energy supplies for Turkey, south and south-east Europe.

The offshore component of the system will be constructed by PAO Gazprom. The offshore pipeline will consist of two parallel pipelines running through the Black Sea. The pipelines will enter the water near Anapa, on the Russian coast, and come ashore on the Turkish coast some 100 kilometres west of Istanbul, near the village of Kiyikoy.

From Kiyikoy, an underground pipeline will be developed connecting TurkStream to the existing network at Luleburgaz. The route will continue from there to its end point at the Turkish-European border.
