Ertuğrul Gazi, the first Turkish-flagged floating storage and gasification unit (FSRU), has worked at full capacity to meet the demand for natural gas after the devastating earthquake that hit the country on 6 February.
According to a statement from Boru Hatları ile Petrol Taşıma AŞ (BOTAŞ), the company’s teams worked around the clock to repair the damages in the natural gas main transmission lines in the Kahramanmaraş region after the earthquakes.
The owner of the Ertuğrul Gazi FSRU, which operates at the Dörtyol terminal located in Hatay, said that the unit alone met the natural gas needs of the region after the earthquake.
The Ertuğrul Gazi FSRU features an LNG storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters, which equals 102 million cubic meters in gas form, and has a regasification capacity of 28 million cubic meters per day. This 295-meter long, 46-meter wide and 63-meter high vessel started operating in June 2021.
To date, the vessel has contributed 3.2 billion cubic meters into the country’s natural gas grid.
The earthquake that hit Türkiye and Syria on 6 February has caused widespread devastation, with thousands of people affected and hundreds of buildings damaged or destroyed.
