Turkey after the invasion of Ukraine
Even before Russian troops entered Ukraine on February 24, Turkey was living a troubled gas winter, with a return of the gas cuts which had characterised most of the last decade. 45% of the country’s gas supplies last year came from Russia – as did one-third of its coal. What can BOTAŞ do to reduce this dependence? And, with LNG spot prices settled so far above the costs of pipeline gas, does Ankara want this?
