Erzincan Compressor Station is one of BOTAS’s projects under ‘Gas Sector Development Project’ with World Bank loan.  With the Gas Sector Development Project it is aimed to increase the reliability and stability of gas supply in Turkey by implementing critically needed gas storage and network infrastructure.

This project will finance Tuzgolu Underground Gas Storage Facility and two compressor stations Erzincan and Corum and other network infrastructure. The Compressor stations are required to help transmit the increasing volumes of gas expected to be imported into Turkey from existing and new sources.

The Erzincan station will have 39 MW of compression capacity and will enable the import of natural gas from Azerbaijan.
