TAP AG: 99% of welding completed along TAP's onshore route
The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) AG company said that 99% of welding activities have been completed along TAP's onshore route.
"Welds are subject to automatic testing to ensure they meet national and international standards," the company said in its Twitter account.
TAP is the European section of the Southern Gas Corridor, enhancing Europe’s energy security and contributing to decarbonisation and the diversification of gas supplies. The TAP will transport Caspian natural gas from the Shah Deniz 2 field to Europe.
As much as 88,5% of the project, including engineering procurement and construction scope, as well as offshore construction, pipeline installation has been successfully implemented. As of end of June, between Greece, Albania and Italy, 99% pipes were already in the ground and reinstatement along the route was over 95% complete.
