Baku, May 10, AZERTAC

Around 95 percent of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) route has been cleared in Greece and Albania, said a message from TAP AG consortium.

“About 725 kilometers out of 765 kilometers-long TAP route in Greece and Albania have now been cleared and graded,” said the consortium.

TAP is a part of the Southern Gas Corridor, which is one of the priority energy projects for the European Union. The project envisages transportation of gas from Azerbaijan`s Shah Deniz Stage 2 to the EU countries.

The pipeline will connect to the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) on the Turkish-Greek border, run through Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea, before coming ashore in Italy’s south. The gas corridor will initially transport annual 10 bln cubic meters of the gas produced within ‘Shah Deniz 2’ project, to Europe.
