Strong demand growth in the late noughties gave the impression that Turkey was a country with limitless appetite for gas. But the high cost of imports saw Ankara introduce a series of policies in 2009 to curb gas consumption. Despite these measures, it took until 2016 for Turkey to register its first demand drop.
