Turkey open to LNG storage projects with Qatar

Published: Updated:

Turkey views positively possible investment in LNG storage projects with Qatar, President Erdogan said during a visit to the emirate, hinting that its troubled relations with Russia could make such deals more attractive.

“We viewed positively a possible LNG storage investment or other steps with Qatar, as a result of obvious developments regarding Turkey,” Erdogan told reporters.

Turkey, which relies heavily on energy imports, has previously explored the possibility of such storage projects with Moscow.

Relations between the two countries have chilled sharply, after Turkey shot down a Russian warplane last week.
