Turkey Hits Record High Gas Consumption on Jan. 8

Turkey's daily natural gas consumption reached a historic record high at 245 million cubic meters on Tuesday, Jan. 8, according to Turkey's energy minister Fatih Donmez late on Wednesday.

The country beat its previous record made on Feb. 14, 2017 when consumption totaled 243 million cubic meters. According to Donmez, January's extreme cold conditions resulted in the country's increased gas demand.

"Thanks to the measures we have taken to ensure our natural gas supply security, we have met this record increase without any downtime or cuts," Donmez said. Last year, Turkey consumed 53.85 billion cubic meters of natural gas -- another record high for the country.
