Starting a business in the midst of impossibilities, growing, taking risks, going bankrupt but not being discouraged are all present in Mustafa Tuncer's life in turn. If he had stayed in Türkiye, there was a strong possibility that he would have served a political sentence. He was an active student in the 1990s, especially on Feb. 28, 1997 post-modern era which the military-dominated National Security Council threatened action if Necmettin Erbakan, Prime Minister did not back down. He resigned four months later. Tuncer spent his days wandering from city to city in protest demonstrations against bans. In his own words, he was not a very hard-working student. He graduated from religious vocational high school in Sakarya, a province in Türkiye, located on the coast of Black Sea. He wasn't very hopeful that he would pass the university exam. He was against the capitalist system fueling consumption. But he chose a department that educates student to create a positive public image for capitalist companies. He graduated from İstanbul University, Faculty of Communication, Department of Public Relations and Publicity.
The event that LNG Allies has arranged with the Turkish Embassy in Washington on June 1 will introduce our members to key energy and trade officials within the Embassy and the Turkish Consulate in Houston, to be briefed by officials in Ankara on the Turkish natural gas market, and for our companies to be able to interact with Turkish counterparts. It is part of a “virtual meet and greet” seminars series we have organized over the past year in markets of interest to the U.S. LNG industry given the difficulty of travel due to Covid.
How do U.S. based LNG companies work with Turkish business?
Turkey is an important market for U.S. LNG exporters. Over the past 12 months (through March 2021), Turkey was the eighth largest market for U.S. LNG exports globally and the third largest in Europe. LNG Allies and our companies have met regularly with Turkish government officials, regulators, and the Turkish energy industry to share our experiences and encourage closer collaboration. These relationships are strong and getting stronger.
What is your organization expectation from Turkish companies/Turkey?
We expect demand for natural gas in Turkey to continue to increase given Turkish economic growth, as well as government efforts to address climate change and diversify sources of energy supply. The flexibility, reliability, and price competitiveness of U.S. LNG has been appreciated by Turkish companies. So, we anticipate Turkey will be a growth market for our exports. We hope to see Turkish companies sign long-term contracts with U.S. LNG suppliers to further strengthen this relationship.
Where do you see the LNG business in five years?
The future for natural gas and LNG is bright. Even in 2020 — when energy demand dropped globally due to the pandemic — demand for LNG grew by two percent to reach 360 million metric tons (MMT). In five years, global LNG demand is expected to rise to around 420 MMT, and the United States will become the top LNG exporting nation. LNG improves energy security and can provide reliable, low-carbon electricity, generating important baseload power when combined with renewables. While most LNG demand growth will be in Asia, we see opportunities in Europe as well, in particular in Turkey.

Have donors lost hope? We know it's been decades of hurt, pain, poverty, suffering for our sisters and brothers there, and a donation may seem small in light of everything. But it's not! A donation can mean a world of difference for a sister or brother in need, like you saw in the video above from Qabalan, Palestine. Because of a donor like YOU, who made the choice to give, this sister was able to get a bread business—the main livelihood for her family—up, running, and thriving (her video is a must-watch)!
