The second line of the TurkStream natural gas pipeline project is over 45 percent completed, according to Asli Esen, the project's spokesperson on Wednesday.
Esen told journalists at a news conference that the giant construction vessel, Pioneering Spirit, which is continuing works on the Black Sea, has finished around 46 percent of the pipelaying for the second line as of Aug. 7.
"The vessel completed 435 kilometers of pipelaying, and with the first line in total 1,369 kilometers of pipes were laid," she said.
The project consists of two lines, each with a length of 930 kilometers and a total capacity of 31.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year.
She detailed that the deep-water offshore construction of the first line of the TurkStream was completed at the end of April 2018 to serve Turkey with 15.75 billion cubic meters of capacity while the second line plans to transfer 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe.
The construction of other supporting infrastructure for the project with the receiving terminal in Turkey's northwestern town of Kiyikoy is ongoing, she said, adding that its function is as a controlling station and is not for gas storage.
