Turkey to halve its supply to private plants due to cold weather -sources

ANKARA, Jan 5 (Reuters) - Turkey’s state pipeline operator Botas will cut supply to gas-fired power plants by 50 percent as of Friday due to increased household demand in cold weather, energy industry sources said on Thursday, in a bid to free up more gas for households.

Three industrial sources said private gas-fired power plants were informed of Botas’ measures, before a cold wave, expected to cause heavy snow, hits Turkey over the weekend.
