In 2021, supplies via the Blue Stream gas pipeline from Russia to Turkey reached a historic record.

Over the first nine months of 2021 Europe’s gas imports increased by 18 billion cubic meters (or by 7.5 per cent) against the same period of 2020.
In January-July, 2021, Gazprom’s gas exports to the Far Abroad countries reached 115.3 bcm.
