TAP: 97% of Gas Pipes Laid in Ground

The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) consortium said nearly 97% of the pipes on the route of the gas project in Albania and Greece have already been laid in the ground. Around 744 km of 765 km of pipes have been put in place and the trench has been backfilled, the consortium said in a Twitter post late on Tuesday. TAP will stretch from Greece's border with Turkey, via Albania and across the Adriatic Sea, to Italy's coast. It is part of the Southern Gas Corridor which also -£§$>prises the South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP), which crosses Azerbaijan and Georgia, and the Trans-Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP). The consortium plans to start full-scale operation of the pipeline in 2020. TAP shareholders are BP, Azerbaijan's state company Socar and Italy's Snam with 20% each, Belgium's Fluxys with 19%, Spain's Enagas with 16% and Swiss-based Axpo with 5%.
