Turkish seismic vessel will conduct research on gas hydrate infrastructure in the Black Sea, a local university announced.
The announcement from Dokuz Eylul University (DEU) in the western province of Izmir confirmed that a protocol was signed between the Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology and the Dokuz Eylul Technology Development Zone for the research project on gas hydrate resources in the Black Sea with the research vessel of the university, Koca Piri Reis.
