Interview with M. Fatih Baltaci, President DIVID Turkey
- Mr Baltaci, could you tell us about DIVID and its operations?
Divid was established by private natural gas importer companies in 2006 in order to contribute to liberalisation of Turkish natural gas market according to Law 4646 which was enacted in 2001. Divid, alongside its member companies, creates cooperation with all the active natural gas companies to add value to the market. As Divid our mission is to help creation of a liberal, competitive, fair and transparent natural gas market. In this regard, we study the current problems and try to develop future strategies for the Turkish gas market.
