ITE Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline Project (ITE)

The natural gas of Iran and Turkmenistan is aimed to be transferred to Europe through Turkey via Iran Turkey Europe Natural Gas Pipeline Project. “Memorandum of Understanding” was signed on the date of 17th of November, 2008 between The Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkish Republic and The Ministry of Oil of Islamic Republic of Iran for the transit pass of Iran natural gas over Turkey.  The diameter of the project is 56 inch. The working pressure is 92 bars. Project’s service life is predicted as 40 years.

For Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline Project, the services of “obtaining institution opinions, geodesy, photogrammetry, geotechnics, nationalization, immovable asset evaluation” are being carried out by Sebat Proje Mühendislik Müşavirlik Tic. LTD. ŞTİ. On behalf of SOCAR.
