Natural gas consumption of Turkey 2005-2019

The consumption of natural gas in Turkey mostly increased during this period, decreasing in only four years. By 2017, consumption hit a peak of 51.6 billion cubic meters, which was more than double the demand recorded in 2005. By 2019, this had fallen to 43.2 billion cubic meters.

Natural gas in Turkey’s energy mix

  Fossil fuels play an important role in Turkey’s energy mix, with natural gas being one of the most significant. In 2018, this energy source had a share of 30.3 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, 2019 saw a noticeable decrease, with pipeline and LNG imports amounting to 31.3 billion cubic meters and 12.9 billion cubic meters, respectively. In this year, Turkey had a share of 2.7 percent of worldwide LNG imports.
Turkey is a major customer of Gazprom, the Russian state-owned energy company, importing 24 bcm from them in 2018.
