Turkey lit the first flare in the Sakarya gas field located in the Black Sea.

“Today, for the first time, we will burn the Black Sea gas that we have discovered and started extracting hundreds of meters underground,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a virtual ceremony to mark the occasion Wednesday.

“With the introduction of Black Sea gas in the near future, we will significantly reduce our dependence on foreign sources,” Erdogan said.

Turkey’s wells drilled for natural gas in the Black Sea aren’t the first, and of course, they won’t be the last, he added.

“Previously, we carried out drilling with international companies via leasing. Now, unlike the previous ones, we also carry out this work with our own vessels and our own human resources,” he continued.

Turkey has also ended its foreign dependence with the technical skill it has acquired in drilling, he said.

Turkey’s largest gas discovery, totaling 405 billion cubic meters (bcm), was discovered last year by the country’s drill ship Fatih in the Sakarya gas field in the Black Sea.

Last month, Turkey announced a second discovery of 135 bcm in the Amasra-1 well in the northern Sakarya gas field, bringing the cumulative total of gas discoveries to 540 bcm.

Last year, the country’s gas consumption amounted to 48.2 billion cubic meters, up about 6.5 percent from the previous year. Turkey imported 48 billion cubic meters of its gas consumption, while domestic production reached 441 million cubic meters in 2020.

The first production of the Sakarya field is scheduled to start by 2023.
