Turkey starts its fourth drilling in Eastern Mediterranean
Turkey's Energy and Natural Resources Minister has announced that exploration and drilling activities both at home and in the Eastern Mediterranean will be occurred.
"We are currently conducting the fourth drilling in the Eastern Mediterranean. We'll keep drilling until we find it [oil]," Turkey's Energy and Natural Resources Minister Donmez said during his speech at the Grand National Assembly of Turkey.
"The initiator of the present problem is the long-standing incompatible attitude of the Greek Cypriot administration," he added.
Turkey, as a guarantor nation for the TRNC, is currently carrying out hydrocarbon exploration activities in the Eastern Mediterranean with two drilling vessels, Fatih and Yavuz, along with the Oruç Reis and Barbaros Hayrettin Paşa seismic vessels in the same region.
