A pioneering step from ESGAZ Inc.
With its approximately 20-year natural gas experience, Eskişehir is one of the Turkey which met with the natural gas the earliest. However, both the natural gas network and the internal installations used by the subscribers are quite old, which requires periodic control of the relevant network and internal installations. In this regard, ESGAZ Inc. took the lead among the distribution companies and started periodic control of the internal installations of the subscribers in order to ensure safe gas use. Within the framework of this project, the public was informed through local press, District Governorships and Consumer Associations. Later on, starting from the oldest areas where the use of natural gas goes back to the farthest, necessary plans were made and informative meetings were held for the subscribers of the relevant regions to explain sensitivity and necessity of the problem. Due to interest and positive approach of the subscribers, internal installations of about 30.000 subscribers were controlled in 2016. It is planned to continue the relevant site works started in 2012 and being continued for four years, in the next years ahead in order to ensure safe gas use.

Planned in the first phase to be established as a land terminal as in the other two models existing in Turkey (BOTAŞ Marmara Ereğlisi LNG Gasification Terminal and Egegaz Aliağa LNG Gasification Terminal), the facility project was revised as Floating LNG Terminal in accordance with the concerns of Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources and Energy Market Regulatory Authority (EPDK) to ensure the security of supply and variety of resources in our country; to enable the supply-demand equilibrium by creating a new point of inflow for meeting the natural gas consumption and to shorten the long installation and construction period of land terminal in accordance with the purposes towards enabling elasticity of supply in short term. While normal project periods of FSRU facilities are between 18 and 24 months, ETKİ FSRU was taken into operation within 6 months by being constructed with a record speed after the investment decision taken on June 2016. There are 24 floating LNG terminals as an example of professional engineering in the world and the number of these facilities is increasing due to their quick commissioning and flexible structure. Floating LNG Terminal which was firstly put into operation by ETKİ PORT MANAGEMENT in Turkey covers a ship with a storage capacity of 145.000 m3 LNG and a capacity of gasification of nominal 14 million m3 per day and 5 billion m3 per year; a pier with a length of 437 m enabling a secure LNG transmission from ship to ship; a gas transfer platform and a dolphin structure; a 36'' high pressure pipeline with a length of 14 km for connecting the terminal to the high pressure main transmission network of BOTAŞ (Petroleum Pipeline Corporation); ship-shore automation system integrating ship, structures on the pier and shore infrastructure by ensuring maximum safety in operations.
