Thrace basin tight gas unconventional play

Report summary

Due to growing domestic energy demand, Turkey's government is forecasting import expenditure to reach US$600 billion by 2023. The Turkish government is determined to increase domestic gas production and reduce the country’s significant reliance on energy imports. Unconventional gas is being emphasised as one way to achieve this goal, and Turkey's Thrace basin is the number one target. Located in northwest Turkey, the basin houses a large number of conventional gas fields but is also prospective for tight gas. Valeura Energy and Equinor lead the way in exploration and appraisal of the tight gas play, largely driven by the country's premium domestic gas price.
