Turkish Energy Minister Fatih Donmez announced the presence of four promising oil fields in the province of Adana on the country's Mediterranean coast, the Sabah newspaper writes on Thursday.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said at the end of June that according to the results of exploration in two wells in Adana, oil was discovered, the value of the reserves is estimated at one billion dollars.
Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Donmez said there are four promising oil fields in the region.
Oil production in Turkey is carried out in the southeastern provinces of Diyarbakir, Adiyaman and Sanliurfa. Turkey provides itself with oil by no more than 5%. The main needs are met through imports, including from Russia.
