UGK launch is not far off: TAP construction is completed 

Construction of the Trans-Adriatic Gas Pipeline (TAP) completed. The TAP consortium said the pipeline will be ready for operation in about a month. Preparations are underway to launch commercial operations.



“Almost four and a half years after construction began, the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline is almost complete. TAP is filled with natural gas from the Greek-Turkish border to the receiving terminal in southern Italy, “- reads in a press release.

” The connection point between the pipeline and the Snam Rete Gas natural gas transportation system is expected to Apulia (Italy) will be completed and ready for gas transportation by mid-November 2020, ”the consortium notes.

How TAP is in the Southern Gas Corridor

The Trans-Adriatic Pipeline is part of the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) and is intended to be an alternative route for natural gas supplies to Europe. The gas from the Azerbaijani Shah Deniz field via Turkey and Greece is to go to southern Europe via it.

The South Caucasus gas pipeline, TANAP (Trans Anatolian pipeline) and TAP (Trans Adriatic pipeline) are part of the SGC. The latter is 878 kilometers long and connects to TANAP at the Greek-Turkish border. It crosses Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea all the way to southern Italy.

The pipeline will initially transport 10 billion cubic meters of gas a year with the potential to double its capacity to 20 billion cubic meters. The TAP consortium includes BP (20%), SOCAR (20%), Snam (20%), Fluxys (19%), Enagás (16%) and Axpo (5%).

TANAP was opened in Turkey in June last year. It ran from the Georgian-Turkish border to the western Turkish border. The share distribution of TANAP shareholders is as follows: Southern Gas Corridor CJSC – 51%, SOCAR Turkey Enerji – 7%, Botas – 30%, BP – 12%. : ///
