Qatar and Turkey are in talks to increase co-operation in energy, including the long-term supply of liquefied natural gas to Turkey, HE the Minister of Energy and Industry Dr Mohamed bin Saleh al-Sada said.
Qatar may sell 2mn metric tonnes of LNG, or 2.8bn cu m of natural gas, annually to Turkey “in the future,” al-Sada told reporters in a joint news conference after meeting with Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz in Istanbul yesterday.
Qatar currently sells LNG to Turkey’s state pipeline operator Boru Hatlari ile Petrol Tasima (Botas), and privately held Egegaz, according to al-Sada. Qatar also plans energy investments in Turkey, he said.
Prospects of Qatar Petroleum co-operating with leading Turkish energy firms brightened as al-Sada held talks with the country’s top officials and executives yesterday.
