The Turkish drilling vessel "Fatih" could detect from one to two natural gas deposits in the Black sea. This was reported on Wednesday by the Haberturk TV channel.
Fatih has been conducting geological exploration in the Black sea since July 20 at the "Danube-1" section, which is located near the intersection of the Bulgarian and Romanian sea borders with the internal waters of Turkey. According to the Turkish channel, the ship could detect deposits of "good quality" natural gas in the "Danube-1" section, as well as another field off the coast of Turkey. Meanwhile, in the past, the first Turkish seismic vessel, the Barbaros Hayrettin Pasha, conducted exploratory work in the Black sea and identified rich natural gas reserves in the Western part of the Black sea.
There was no official confirmation of this information in Ankara, but earlier on Wednesday, President of the Republic Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced his intention to announce "very good news for the country, which will open a new era for Turkey" on August 21.
