Drilling vessel Yavuz explores Eastern Mediterranean
Turkey sent its drilling vessel Yavuz to continue hydrocarbon exploration activities in the southern part of the island of Cyprus.
Second drillship of Turkey, Yavuz, has arrived in the Eastern Mediterranean on Friday for its new duty.
“Yavuz will launch a new round of offshore drilling operations on 7 October 2019. The drilling area lies within the Turkish CS (continental shelf) registered with the UN," Cagatay Erciyes, acting director general at the Turkish Foreign Ministry, has announced on Twitter.
As a guarantor nation for the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), Turkey is responsible with hydrocarbon exploration activities in the Eastern Mediterranean with its two drilling vessels, Fatih and Yavuz.
Yavuz is supposed to work in the Mediterranean Sea until January 2020.
