Turkish media: “LNG project from Greece near the border with Turkey”

Turkish media covered the start of construction of the floating Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal in Alexandroupolis and stressed that it will be built near the Greek-Turkish border, presenting details from yesterday’s ceremony in the presence of Balkan leaders.

Turkish media point out that the project aims to contribute to Europe ‘s energy independence from Russia, quoting Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis as saying: “Moscow’s latest gas blackmail makes this cooperation not only necessary. but also urgent.”

The floating LNG storage and gasification terminal, which will anchor 17.6 km southwest of the port of Alexandroupolis, is expected to have a capacity of 153,500 cubic metres and provide about 5.5 billion cubic meters per year to the national natural gas transmission system.

The project, with a budget of 364m euros, is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.

It is worth noting, however, that in relation to the past that Alexandroupolis had been “targeted” due to the American military presence and the exercises that had taken place in the area, the reports move clearly in the news coverage of the opening ceremony of the LNG floating terminal.
