Gazprom, Russian energy company, increased the amount of natural gas transfer to Turkey.
Gazprom spokesman Sergei Kupriyanov said on Thursday that the transfer of natural gas to Turkey via Blue Stream was doubled to 37 million cubic meters as of yesterday.
Kupriyanov noted that Gazprom increased the amount after an explosion occurred on Iran-Turkey natural gas pipeline.
Noting that there was a rise in Gazprom's natural gas transfer to Turkey, Kupriyanov said that this situation showed that Turkish economy was rapidly recovering after global economic crisis.
Kupriyanov added that the explosion in Iran-Turkey natural gas pipeline increased Turkey's natural gas demand from Russia.
On August 24, terrorists staged an attack on Iran-Turkey natural gas pipeline near Catalpinar village of Eleskirt town in Turkey's eastern province of Agri. The natural gas transfer halted due to the explosion.
