Energy and Natural Resources Minister announced they have bought a seismic vessel for oil and natural gas search in the seas.

ANKARA (AA) - January 30, 2013 - Turkish Energy and Natural Resources Minister Taner Yildiz on Wednesday announced that they have bought a seismic vessel to conduct two and three dimensional seismic surveys in the seas of Turkey.

Yildiz stated that they have come to an important point in search of oil and natural gas in the seas as they were at the final stage of the project ongoing for nearly seven months. 

Announcing that they have bought a seismic vessel that proved its success in the international arena in 2D and 3D seismic surveying, Yildiz said, "We made a payment of 130 million USD and the vessel is to pass the Canakkale Strait on Wednesday and then head for Istanbul."

He mentioned that the vessel would conduct searches in the Black Sea and then in the Mediterranean Sea, Yildiz said, "Our Prime Minister approved the name of "Barbaros Hayrettin Pasa" upon my offer. The seismic vessel is to strengthen the basis for international agreements in addition to our search from the land."

Editor's note: According to Hurriyet Daily News: "Yıldız said the vessel would conduct searches in the Black Sea and then in the Mediterranean Sea. Energy-hungary Turkey is bidding for finding oil and gas both in the Black Sea and the Mediterranean. 

The vessel constructed in 2011 is able to make automatic predictions of direction and position due to satellite communications. The vessel, named “Barbaros Hayrettin Paşa,” will be introduced to the public in an upcoming ceremony organized in Istanbul’s Beşiktaş Pier. 

It passed through Dardanelles Strait yesterday to arrive Istanbul.

The vessel will be painted red and white, which are the colors of Turkey’s flag, after customs and harbor registration is completed".
