Greece's state-controlled gas utility DEPA announced on Thursday that Greece started receiving natural gas from the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) after the completion of its construction in December.
DEPA signed a 25-year gas supply contract with TAP in 2013 for the supply of natural gas from the Shah Deniz field in Azerbaijan.
Natural gas inflow to Turkey's gas network saw a year-on-year increase of around 6.38 percent to 50 billion cubic meters (bcm) in 2020, according to data from the Turkish Petroleum Pipeline Corporation (BOTAŞ).
In 2019, around 47 bcm of natural gas was carried through the Turkish natural gas system.
