In this study, current situation of natural gas and its geo-energetics in our country are analysed and its supply and demand equilibrium is compared. Today, some factors such as its cheapness relatively to many other kinds of fuel, high efficiency, easiness of its use, demand flexibility and low investment cost brought natural gas use into the forefront. By mentioning geopolitical state between natural gas-environment and energy sources of the negotiations between Turkey and European Union (EU), effects of adopted policy are treated. As of 1984 in Turkey, natural gas sector has picked up speed, totally 664 million m3 natural gas was produced in 2012 and until now 13,5 billion m3 natural gas has been produced. Production fall was able to be prevented partially with the exploration of new petrol area in Turkey and development of secondary production methods, in 2012 relatively to 2011, %4 fall occurred. Raise of natural gas consumption that occurs every year depending upon developing industry and life quality has been observed. With the international agreements, it is determined that our country, which has a crucial position as a bridge in import and export, will have a 150 billion-m3 natural gas system.
