    a actual turkish link saying that
    Drilling works began in 20 June 2005. And Oil production will start in 2006.
    These found petroleum fields will ensure Turkey's Oil needs for 40 - 50 Years.

    BP and TPAO expect to start drilling in eastern Black Sea

    20-01-04

    British Petroleum and Turkey's state-run oil company TPAO said they expected to begin drilling for oil off of Turkey's Black Sea coast by the end of the year. Officials said they were optimistic of striking oil, but did not say how much crude might be beneath the sea.

    BP Exploration and TPAO have completed seismic surveys off the coast of the eastern port city of Rize and planning is underway to begin drilling in December.

    Turkish Energy Minister Hilmi Guler said Turkey "was hoping to find oil in the Black Sea" to help meet the country's demands. Turkey currently produces 39,000 bpd of oil, less than 15 % its consumption.

    BP Exploration company vice president Hugh McDowell said that experts "don't know how much oil is there.... Only after you drill the well you can get sufficient information to tell you how much the potential there really is."

    Oil officials have suggested in the past that for offshore drilling to be viable reserves of a few billion barrels and daily production of 150,000 barrels would be needed.

    BP has already spent some $ 25 mm on the project and expects to invest another $ 25 mm to $ 30 mm this year.

    TPAO and BP find new oil reserves in Black Sea

    17-07-03

    Offshore oil reserves of a few billion barrels of oil near the Black Sea coastal towns of Trabzon and Rize have been found, following studies by the Turkish petroleum monopoly (TPAO) and British Petroleum (BP).

    Turkey and England will be sharing the oil half and half. The target is to produce 150,000 bpd of oil. Turkey currently produces 36,000 bpd of oil.

    According to the companies, satellite photos indicate the presence of oil reserves beneath the Black Sea. BP spent $ 22.5 million on the two-dimensional seismic searches. A Norwegian ship, Ramform Challenger, will be in the Black Sea to do a further six week search.

    BP and TPAO officials at the Ciragan Palace, Ministry of Energy and Natural Sources Hilmi Guler stated the significance of the find for both Turkey and Britain. TPAO General Director Osman Saim Dinc said that the monopoly watched every step of the search very carefully. He points out that Turkey's share of the oil in Azeri Guneshli and Shah Deniz in 2005, which is to be transferred to Ceyhan, is equivalent to Turkey's entire current oil production. Dinc said that in 2008, this share would double domestic production.

    BP Exploration company Turkey Director Tahir Uysal noted that, according to studies, the oil reserves are located near the Trabzon and Rize seashores.

    BP has been in Turkey for 92 years and has invested $ 1.5 bn.

    BP Exploration company Vice President Hugh Mcdowell said that although the stated volume of the oil reserves in the Black Sea was just a speculatory figure, the company expected to produce 150,000 bpd.

    The Big oil fields found in Caspian Sea will go through Pipelines to Turkey.

    This BTC (Baku-Tiflis-Ceyhan) Pipeline was finished build this year.
    Today only Azerbaycan oil from Caspian sea comes to turkey.

    But Other Caspian Lands (Turkmenistan, Kazakistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan)
    will build a Pipeline wich connects them with BTC-Pipeline.

    Work on Nabucco pipeline gets underway

    Turkey to carry Egyptian gas to Europe

    Vladimir Putin wants to build a Pipeline From Russia through the Black Sea, connecting Ceyhan Navy Port with russian Gas.




    BTC-Pipeline is a huge step bringing Central-Asian + Caspian Oil to the western World.

    And now furthermore to BTC-Pipeline there is build SCP (South Causcasian Pipeline) in addition to bring those oil to Ceyhan in turkey.
    http://www.caspiandevelopmentandexport.com/ASP/SCP.asp




    Northern-Iraqi oil is also connected via Kirkuk-Ceyhan.







    The preparations for carrying the Central Asian natural gas to Europe through Turkey have been in progress. In addition to the completed lines, the 20 % of the world's oil will be carried through Turkey when the projects will also be completed. In other words, Turkey will become one of the world's energy lines, not just of Europe.

    so in near future 20% of western oil will go through Turkey. There in Cayhan Navyport shipped to the whole world.
