The Cyprus-Turkey (Anamur to North Cyprus Gas Pipeline/Turkey-TRNC natural gas pipeline[1]) is a proposed gas pipeline in Turkey.


The offshore section of the pipeline would parallel the existing Northern Cyprus Water Supply system, which runs from Anamur, Mursin Province, Turkey to Güzelyalı, Karsiyaka, Northern Cyprus.[2]

Anamur-North Cyprus

  • Owner:
  • Proposed capacity:
  • Diameter: 24 in
  • Length: 90 km[2]
  • Status: Proposed
  • Cost: $337,591,286[3]
  • Start Year: 2025[2]


In November 2019 a plan to build the pipeline was announced by Turkish Cypriot Minister of Energy and Economy Hasan Tacoy.[4] A sponsor for the project has not yet been identified. The proposed pipeline will carry gas from fields to the south of Cyprus, first to the Cyprus LNG Terminal at Vasilikos, before travelling onshore to Girne in Northern Cyprus. The pipeline will then connect to Turkey's gas transmission system in Anamur, Turkey.[3]

This pipeline proposal is seen by some as an alternative to the East Med Gas Pipeline.[5] It will allow gas from Cypriot fields to be distributed throughout Europe through Turkey, bypassing the need for the East Med Gas pipeline.
