"As a result of testing, analysis, and detailed engineering work, another 85 billion cubic meters were added to the reserves we had discovered," Erdogan said onboard the Fatih drillship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Xinhua news agency reported.

In August, the drilling ship discovered 320 billion cubic meters of natural gas reserves.

The Fatih vessel started its drilling activities in late July in an exploration zone known as Tuna-1 off the northern Zonguldak province in the Black Sea region.
