The natural gas sector in Turkey was initiated with an international agreement in 1984. The first natural gas purchase was executed in 1986 with a quantity of 6 billion meter cubes. As Turkey developed the infrastructure of its natural gas network, other long-term agreements of international gas supply were concluded.

With the foundation of ENERGY MARKET REGULATORY AUTHORITY (EPDK) in 2001, it was intended to liberalize the energy sector and a competition environment that is quality, based on the security of supply, environment-friendly and seeks for the economic advantage of the consumer was created. The liberalization process starting with the first Natural Gas Province Distribution License in 2003 in order to expand the usage of natural gas in all of the provinces of Turkey continued by 2010. The targets related to the Local Distribution foreseen in the law were accomplished and 65 distribution regions were privatized.

By emphasizing the need for a natural gas sector with many actors; the long-term international agreements of BOTAŞ were presented in tenders and a 10 % of privatization was achieved. In 2005 a Contract Transfer Tender was held by BOTAŞ and by 2009 4 private companies completed their transitions to the business. Authorities were given in respect of the special regulations for LNG IMPORTATION AND NATURAL WHOLESALE. The spot LNG importation started in 2009.
