Almost 100% of TAP project complete in Greece and Albania
About 98% of pipes needed for the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), which envisages transportation of Azerbaijani gas to Europe, are in the ground in Greece and Albania, the TAP AG consortium said in a message.
"In February 2013, Greece Albania and Italy signed a trilateral intergovernmental agreement, reinforcing their support for TAP. Six years later, 98% of pipes are in the ground in Greece and Albania," the message reads.
The TAP project, worth 4.5 billion euros, is one of the priority energy projects for the European Union (EU). The project envisages transportation of gas from Azerbaijan's Shah Deniz Stage 2 to the EU countries.
