Turkey Wants Right to Re-export Russian Gas

2009/07/18

Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said yesterday Turkey was seeking a re-export clause in its contract to import Russian natural gas. The Turkish government wants the right to re-export the fuel in its current contract to import an annual 6 billion cubic meters of Russian gas from a western trans-Balkan pipeline, Yildiz told reporters. “The right to re-export has to do with selling the gas we buy to another country … which is a right we don’t have in our Russian contract, so it will be among our proposals,” he said. “We are especially seeking such (a clause) in our agreement with Russia which expires in 2011.” Turkey has a contractual right to re-export gas it imports from Azerbaijan and it sells that fuel to Greece.
