BASIC ACTIVITIES > Exploration

In accordance with our vision and mission for meeting Turkey’s continuously increasing oil and natural gas demand through domestic and international sources, we have made a boom in our domestic investments by setting our new exploration strategy in the recent years by extending our activities in unexplored basins of Turkey, especially Black Sea and Mediterranean offshore.

In 2014, in addition to the hydrocarbon proven basins, our activities also continued in unexplored fields. Our offshore hydrocarbon exploration activities gained a momentum in recent years. With natural gas gaining importance and new technology developments and implementation through new concepts, natural gas exploration in shallow and deep became important.

We continue our farm-out activities covering Mersin and İskenderun Bays licenses following Antalya Bay. We are excited and aware of that, the successful results that may be obtained from the drillings in our offshore areas will carry both Turkish Petroleum and Turkey to “2023 targets”.

With the same effort, excitement and expectation, we attached priority to realize exploration, drilling and production activities on onshore fields of our country. Our offshore activities in our seas continue at its top speed.
