Yildiz: TANAP being implemented ahead of schedule
The Trans-Anatolian gas pipeline construction project (TANAP) is being implemented ahead of schedule, the DHA agency cited the Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Taner Yildiz.
He believes that this project is important not only for Turkey but also for Europe.
“The fact that Turkey is negotiating with Russia over the construction of the Turkish Stream gas pipeline does not mean that it can somehow affect the TANAP implementation,” Yildiz noted.
The TANAP project envisages the transportation of gas of Azerbaijan’s Shah Deniz field from the Georgian-Turkish border to the western borders of Turkey, Trend reports.
