Gazprom says Turkey requested increase in gas supplies

According to the report, it has been requested to increase daily gas supplies 9.3% to 82.1 mln cubic meters

MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. The Turkish side has requested Gazprom to boost gas supplies from Russia due to suspension of deliveries from Iran, the company said in a press release on Friday.

"The request for October 28 has been raised by 9.3% to 82.1 mln cubic meters per day. Similar to previous cases Gazprom will fulfill the request and supply additional volumes of gas to Turkey," the report said.

As was reported earlier an explosion hit the gas pipeline in eastern Turkey, halting supplies.

Turkey is the second-biggest foreign market for Gazprom after Germany. In 2015, Gazprom gas supplies to the country amounted to 27 bln cubic meters. The plan is to supply 24.5 bln cubic meters of gas by the end of this year and 25.1 bln cubic meters in 2017, Deputy Chairman Alexander Medvedev said earlier.
