According to official statistics from the Turkish Energy Market Regulatory Authority, Turkey imported 5.32 billion cubic meters of natural gas from Iran in 2020, a year-on-year decrease of 31%. The share of Iranian natural gas in Turkey has been replaced by countries such as Azerbaijan, Russia and the United States. Turkey mainly imports natural gas from Iran, Azerbaijan and Russia through pipelines, while the rest relies on liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports. Last year, Turkey’s imports of natural gas from Azerbaijan increased by 21% year-on-year, imports from Russia increased by 16% year-on-year, and imports of LNG from the US increased by 144% year-on-year. In May 2019, Turkey stopped purchasing Iranian oil, and it stopped purchasing Iranian electricity a year ago.
