Natural gas in Turkey’s energy mix

  Fossil fuels play an important role in Turkey’s energy mix, with natural gas being the most significant. In 2017, this energy source had a share of 37.2 percent. Despite this, natural gas shares in the energy mix have declined in recent years, falling from 48 percent in 2014.


  Turkey is heavily reliant on gas imports, from both pipeline and LNG (Liquefied natural gas). In 2017, combined imports amounted to 53.7 bcm. This was a similar volume when compared to the three years prior. However, 2018 saw a noticeable decrease, with pipeline and LNG imports amounting to 20.2 bcm and 11.5 bcm, respectively.
