Turkey - Gas Sector Development Project : resettlement plan (Vol. 2) : Land acquisition policy framework - compressor stations (English)

The Gas Sector Development Project objective is to increase the reliability and stability of gas supply in Turkey by implementing critically needed gas storage and network infrastructure, and support the Turkish Pipeline Company (BOTAS) in strengthening its operations as a financially stable, and commercially managed corporation. According to the geological possibility of underground storage in Turkey, a geological screening leads the Tuz Gölü Basin, where large leached salt caverns could be accommodated. It is a favorable location for a peak shaving storage (not far from Ankara) and close to the Kayseri-Konya-Seydi?ehir Gas Pipeline, and also, the existence of pure rock salt is proved at a suitable depth. The Project primarily involves economic, rather than physical displacement; however, it involves the acquisition of permanent and temporary land for project uses, and thus has the potential to affect people's livelihoods. In order to avoid physical dislocation, and to minimize economic dislocation for affected populations, the Project has adopted several measures, including: minimizing Project land use, reclaiming land after construction, and reinstating the land, with minimum restrictions following construction, for use by the original land owners and users; designing the routing to avoid any physical resettlement and to minimize expropriation, both permanently and temporarily; no physical relocation or resettlement of households will result from project interventions; determining compensation values based on extensive data collection and net income evaluation methodology.
