The TurkStream natural gas pipeline project has shown rapid progress in 2017, according
to the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) latest natural gas report. “The TurkStream pipeline project linking up Russia with Turkey via the Black Sea is believed to be making rapid progress, following the ratification of relevant intergovernmental agreements and the signature of a pipelinelaying contract in 2016,” the IEA said. The agency noted that the construction of the pipeline started in May 2017 and is expected to finish in late 2019.
