TAP Secures Italian Single Authorisation Permit

The Italian Government has granted Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) its Single Authorisation Permit.

The Single Authorisation is a key permit that allows TAP to move ahead with the start of pipeline construction in 2016.

TAP will cross Northern Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea before coming ashore in Southern Italy to connect to the Italian natural gas network.

Once built, TAP will offer a direct transportation route opening up the vital Southern Gas Corridor, a 3500-kilometre long gas value chain stretching from the Caspian Sea to Europe.

TAP will be approximately 870 kilometres in length (Greece 545 km; Albania 211 km; Adriatic Sea 105 km; Italy 8 km). Its highest point will be 1,800 metres in Albania’s mountains, while its lowest will be 820 metres beneath the sea.

The pipeline will be ready to transport gas from Shah Deniz II to Europe in early 2020.
