Turkish gas companies will sell gas inside the country

According to the new law «On the oil and gas», adopted by the Turkish Parliament, all companies, involved in gas extraction in Turkey, will be able to independently sell the extracted gas at the country’ domestic market.

At that, the gas supply to residential buildings by such companies is not allowed.

The law will come into effect on January 1, 2013, Day.az reports.

In addition to that, this law limits gas consumption by consumers from residential buildings. Each consumer will be able to use not more than 300 thousand cubic meters of gas a year.

Based on the results of 2011, annual gas production in Turkey was 674 million cubic meters.
