Kayserigaz integrates into the SCADA system and controls the gas grid as much as possible, and in case of any accident, it can be eliminated in a short time. The company has ISO 9001, ISO 10002, ISO 14001, ISO 27001, ISO 31000 and ISO 45001 certificates.

SOCAR Enerji Ticaret

SOCAR Enerji Ticaret, which carries out the wholesale of natural gas and electricity in Türkiye, has been considered the largest private sector representative in natural gas trade since 2009. SOCAR Enerji Ticaret, one of the leading companies in this area, sold 15 TWh (trillion watts per hour) of natural gas and electricity in 2021. The annual natural gas consumption of SOCAR Türkiye is approximately 1.7 billion m³, and taking into account the current investments, this figure is expected to increase further in the coming years. This means that the role of SOCAR Enerji Ticaret will increase even more.
