Turkey to revise upward estimate of Black Sea gas discovery, report says​

Turkey is preparing to revise upward its estimate of its natural gas discovery in the Black Sea, Bloomberg reported, citing sources with direct knowledge of the plans.
Turkey in August announced its biggest natural gas discovery, a 320 billion-cubic-meter field in the Black Sea that President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said is part of even bigger reserves and could come onstream as soon as 2023.
“This reserve is actually part of a much bigger source. God willing, much more will come,” Erdoğan said. “There will be no stopping until we become a net exporter in energy.”
Turkey currently imports nearly all of its energy needs, and the discovery is promised to help drive down its current account deficit.
Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Dönmez on several occasions said data suggested more natural gas would be found as drilling continues deeper under the seabed. A senior energy ministry official in September said that Turkey hopes to announce the new discovery in October.


The country is now said to be preparing to update the amount as soon as this week after further exploration drilling is completed, Bloomberg said on Friday, citing the sources.
The Turkish government is about to disclose a “sizable revision” to the initial estimate, they noted.
3rd drillship leaves Mersin bound for Black Sea
Earlier this month, Dönmez said that Turkey’s third drillship would also be deployed and begin exploration for natural resources in the Black Sea in the first months of 2021.
“We hope to begin operations in the first months of next year, and with that, Kanuni will be working together with the Fatih drillship in the Black Sea,” Dönmez said.
Kanuni will support the Fatih drillship, which found the 320 billion-cubic-meter natural gas field some 100 nautical miles north of the Turkish coast.
Kanuni on Saturday set sail from the country’s southern Mersin province on its Black Sea drilling mission.
Kanuni was added to Turkey's fleet this year, arriving in Mersin’s Tasucu district on March 15 for renewal and upgrade studies.
The vessel is now scheduled to arrive at Haydarpaşa Port on Istanbul’s Asian side before setting sail for operations in the Black Sea.
On Sept. 30, Dönmez said that tower disassembly works would be conducted for Kanuni to pass under the three Bosporus bridges.
Before Turkey’s procurement, the drillship had been sitting idle at a Welsh port town for nearly two years. It has an estimated market value of $120 million (TL 943 million), and Turkey reportedly bought the drillship for nearly $40 million.
The sixth-generation ultra drillship was built by South Korea's Samsung Heavy Industries and used by Brazil's Petrobras between 2012 and 2015.
The Kanuni is 227 meters (744.8 feet) long, 42 meters wide and has a draft of 12 meters. Its equipment can reach up to 11,400 meters below sea level and can drill to a depth of 3,000 meters below the seabed.
The name Kanuni, which means the "lawgiver" in Turkish, stems from Suleiman I, also known as Suleiman the Magnificent. He was one of the greatest leaders of the Ottoman Empire and was its 10th and longest-reigning sultan, ruling from 1520 until his death in 1566.

You know it's all fine and all, but I think any findings in E.Med. is more important.

I do not think they will announce anything until we have secured knowledge and platforms to bring it out ourselves.

Award from YÖK for the project that nationalizes high technology training in oil drilling ships

Higher Education awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award of the university-industry cooperation projects, Turkey will have a say in the international arena in high-tech training in drill ship at this time.


After the facial laugh reserves News in natural gas exploration, Higher Education Outstanding Achievement Award with her worthy of university-industry cooperation projects, Turkey will have a say in the international arena in high-tech training in drill ship at this time.

Turkey Petroleum Corporation (TPAO) and Istanbul Technical University (ITU) İTÜNOV carried out in partnership with the Technology Transfer Office project completed earlier when technology training received abroad, it can be done with national resources in Turkey.

At the ceremony held yesterday at the Presidency National Congress and Cultural Center with the participation of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, "YÖK 2020 Outstanding Achievement Awards", which are given for the fourth time this year by YÖK, in order to encourage studies, projects, thesis and community service activities carried out with scientific research at universities found. The awards given by President Erdoğan were presented in two categories as individual and corporate.

After the facial laugh reserve news in drilling operations, Turkey is an important university-industry cooperation projects will have a voice in the international arena in high-tech training of this time the drill ship, drew attention to an award in the corporate category at the ceremony.

"YÖK University-Industry Cooperation Award" was the cooperation project between TPAO and İTÜNOVA TTO for "Localizing Oil and Natural Gas Industry Offshore Safety and Emergency Advanced Trainings with Accreditation and Certificate".

Accredited educational technology in Turkey's drill ship will be open to the world

The university-industry cooperation model applied between TPAO and İTÜNOVA sets an example in many aspects among the projects carried out in this field.

Through this cooperation, high technology content of education infrastructure in Turkey to be accredited in the maritime field, especially at the global level will be opened to companies operating in the oil and gas industry.

The İTÜNOVA Technology Transfer Office, which was established within the framework of the Higher Education Institutions Technology Transfer Office Regulation to strengthen the entrepreneurship, business development and commercial aspect of the project, stands out as an innovative and pioneering approach.

When the project is completed, the Technology Transfer Office İTÜNOV, Turkey will have the first training opiton approved vendor title and will play a leading role.

In particular, when discovered natural gas reserves in the Black Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean region, the latest developments are considered, these qualifications be structured in Turkey in an international training and certification providers is of great importance.

İTÜNOVA Technology Transfer Office will also be an important regional solution partner in the training and certification processes of companies that provide human resource support in the oil and natural gas sector.

Especially on the sea in the drilling vessel and the sea under challenging the high-tech training abroad rather than outside in areas such as oil and natural gas tenements to be given in Turkey, the country will increase both the academic and technological knowledge will contribute both large economy.

Their operating in the region will be met next major firms due to technological developments demand for education and academic studies on these issues in Turkey will be moved to a new dimension.

This is of great importance in the global oil and natural gas in areas such as value to Turkey will contribute to the economy.

The way will be paved for the development of high technologies in the field of drilling with national means

When the project, which will be implemented in cooperation with the university and industry, is completed, the way will be opened to the development of high technologies such as sensors used in drilling ships and seismic research software with national facilities.

A suitable platform will be provided for the academicians to develop new national and domestic technologies thanks to the knowledge accumulated in the country on technologies to be used in drilling ships.

With the cooperation will also contribute to the higher rate of use of indigenous technology in Turkey's national ships.

Well, we're already building supply and support vessels to Esvagt, so I believe the step to improving on that should be rather easier than starting from scratch.

We have to look harder. We have only found 9 years worth of consumption of Turkey so far.
