Turkey To Continue Exploration In E.Med Until Nov. 29

Oruc Reis research vessel to conduct seismic studies in Eastern Mediterranean for 9 days.

Turkey has issued another navigational telex, or Navtex, for the area in the Eastern Mediterranean where it will conduct seismic research activities until Nov. 29.
According to the announcement, the mission, which will be carried out by the Oruc Reis seismic research vessel, will continue for 9 days starting Saturday.
A Navtex is a maritime communications system that allows ships to inform other vessels about their presence in an area as well as other information.
The Oruc Reis will carry out seismic studies in the Eastern Mediterranean together with two other vessels, the Ataman and Cengiz Han.
It will conduct various geological, geophysical, hydrographic and oceanographic surveys, especially of the continental shelf, while also searching for natural resources.
The Energy and Natural Resources Ministry on Saturday announced that Oruc Reis will collect seismic data along 2,806 kilometers (1,743 miles).
"Oruc Reis Seismic Research Ship have collected 149 km (92 miles) of data as part of the 'Demre 2B Seismic Data Collection Project' that it started in Aug. 10 on the Mediterranean Sea. With the Navtex released today, 2,806 more km (1,743 miles) of data will be collected to be completed on Nov. 29," the ministry said in a tweet.
In August, Turkey resumed energy exploration in the Eastern Mediterranean after Greece and Egypt signed a controversial maritime delimitation deal, spurning Turkey's goodwill gesture in halting the exploration.
Declaring the Greek-Egyptian deal "null and void," Turkey authorized the Oruc Reis to continue its activities in an area within Turkey's continental shelf.
Turkey has consistently opposed Greece's efforts to declare an exclusive economic zone based on small islands near Turkish shores, violating the interests of Turkey, the country with the longest coastline in the Mediterranean.
Ankara has also said energy resources near the island of Cyprus must be shared fairly between the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) and the Greek Cypriot administration of Southern Cyprus. -
