Turkish seismic survey vessel to resume activities in Mediterranean: minister

33

Turkish seismic survey vessel Oruc Reis sailed to the Eastern Mediterranean Sea to resume its activities, Turkish Energy and Natural Resources Minister Fatih Donmez announced on Monday.

Donmez said on his Twitter account that the vessel raised the anchor to “take the X-ray of the Mediterranean” following the completion of its maintenance works.

Last month, Ankara withdrew Oruc Reis from its activity area to a port in Turkey’s Antalya province for its monthly maintenance and supplies.

The vessel has so far collected a total of 3,525 km seismic data in the Mediterranean Sea, the ministry earlier declared. Enditem
