Turkey’s new FSRU set to start Dortyol ops

Turkey will this week hold an official ceremony to mark the start of operations for its new FSRU located at the Dortyol facility.

To remind, Turkey’s FSRU Ertugrul Gazi, owned by Botas, arrived in April in the southern province of Hatay to start supplying regasified LNG to the Dortyol facility.

Turkish Energy Minister Fatih Donmez said on Wednesday the country plans to hold the official opening ceremony for the vessel on Friday, according to local media reports.

Moreover, the ceremony would gather high-ranking officials, including Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan, the reports said.

Botas, a unit of Turkish Petroleum Corp, has appointed Wilhelmsen Ship Management as the manager of the first Turkish-flagged FSRU.

The FSRU has a regasification capacity of 28 million cubic meters per day and a storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters. It is 295 meters long and 46 meters wide.

In addition to the brand new Ertugrul Gazi, there is also one other FSRU operating in Turkey at the privately-owned Etki terminal in Aliaga, Izmir. The 170,000-cbm Turquoise belongs to Pardus Energy.

Turkey also plans to add another FSRU in Saros Bay, north of the Gallipoli Peninsula.
