Turkish authorities are preparing to drill 100 wells on land in 2023 in order to explore oil and natural gas deposits, as well as carry out certain work in the sea, reports TASS.

It is assumed that the geological exploration work will be accelerated inside the country and abroad due to the need to meet the needs of the energy sector of oil, natural gas, and geothermal resources, as well as the demand for raw materials in industry.

In addition, it is planned that the number of offshore drilling rigs will increase to 26 by the end of next year, which will enable 14 offshore drilling operations to be carried out. They will be related to the sea areas of the “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus” as well.
