Turkey's President Recep Tayyib Erdogan and Russia's President Vladimir Putin will attend the opening ceremony of the TurkStream gas pipeline.

Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, Serbia's President Aleksandar Vucic, Azerbaijan's Energy Minister Parviz Shahbazov, and Hungary's Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto, as well as many other officials, are expected to attend the ceremony.

The pipeline will transmit Russian natural gas to Turkey and Europe under the Black Sea. The project consists of two pipelines with a total supply of 31.5 bcm. Turkey will receive 15.75 bcm of gas.

Many experts think that it will transform Turkey into an energy hub. As we know already launched Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) and Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) passes from Turkey and delivers Azerbaijani gas to Turkey and Europe. By this project, Turkey's role as energy transit will be cemented.
