Another important point to note here is that a cash-strapped Turkey may need access to oil reserves. Turkey has that at it's disposal. The Tammar and Leviathan gas fields of Israel.

Actually, they're not at Turkey's disposal. They belong to someone else. How about Saudi oil fields, are they at Turkey's disposal, too?
