The Minister met with his Norwegian counterpart Tord Lien at the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in Oslo, a press spokesperson told The Foreigner.

Website worldbulletin.net reports Minister Yildiz asked the Scandinavian country about purchasing up to six billion cubic metres of LNG.

US Energy Information Administration (EIA) officials describe Turkey’s importance in world energy markets as “growing, both as a regional energy transit hub and as a growing consumer.”

“Turkey is a key part of oil and natural gas supplies movement from Russia, the Caspian region, and the Middle East to Europe.”

Information as of April 2014 lists the country’s Izmir (Aliaga) and Marmara LNG Regasification Terminals as being currently On-Stream.

The Foreigner asked Statoil communications manager for international upstream activities Knut Rostad about his company’s possible role as LNG supplier regarding Turkey.

“I’m not sure what meeting is referred to in the [website’s] article, but Statoil participated in a lunch held by the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy yesterday.”

When were talks regarding supplying Turkey with LNG held, if at all, and how far advanced is the process?

“In general terms we continuously evaluate commercial opportunities to develop our LNG business. Besides that we do not have any comment,” concluded Mr Rostad.
