Turkiye discovered high-quality petroleum in country’s east

Türkiye’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday announced a fresh discovery of a new oil reserve in the country’s eastern region, Anadolu Agency reports.

I’d like to share some fresh good news. We have discovered oil reserves with a production capacity of 100,000 barrels per day in Cudi and Gabar. Türkiye will no longer depend on others in energy but rather become an energy exporter. Our new field, the Martyr Aybuke Yalcin-1 Well, will hopefully provide more oil than produced around the whole country

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President of Turkiye

The oil discovered at a depth of 2,600 meters (8,530 feet) will be extracted “with 100 wells and will meet one-tenth of our daily use.”

Regarding Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant, Erdogan said the country will be able to meet 10% of its energy needs from the plant and announced that a second nuclear power plant may be built in Sinop.
