Trans Adriatic Pipeline Passes Halfway Mark

The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) has achieved 50% completion mark, nearly 16 months after the start of the construction.

This includes all engineering, procurement and construction scope, TAP informed.

TAP’s contractors have cleared around 70% of the project route in Greece and Albania, approximately 539km out of 765km.

Approximately 95% of the total 55,000 pipes to be used for the construction of the pipeline have been received in Greece, Albania and Italy. The last shipment of offshore line pipes has been offloaded in Brindisi, Italy, between September 3 and 6, 2017, the company noted.

TAP managing director Luca Schieppati said: “We are pleased that TAP continues to progress on time and on budget. We therefore remain on track to deliver the first Shah Deniz II gas in 2020, bringing a much-needed new source of energy into the European energy network.

“I want to underline that our project is built with the utmost care for the environment. Our teams are working very carefully along our route to ensure that the land on which construction has been completed is returned to the owners or users in its original condition or better. We are also collaborating with local authorities and local stakeholders to ensure that the benefits of our project are tangible across all those communities crossed by the pipeline.”
