Construction of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline is expected to begin in 2016, while, according to an update by the project’s consortium, TAP, the development of supporting road and bridge infrastructure projects will commence in 2015.
In the lead-up to the project’s commencement, the consortium has unveiled an official project logo and launched a new website, www.tap-ag.com to provide local communities located along the pipeline’s progression, in Greece, Albania, and Italy, with details concerning the project.
Details included on the new website include expropriation matters, as well as information on the prospective overall benefits to be offered by this project. The new website also aims to serve as a public pool of useful information for interested parties – locally, nationally, and internationally – announced TAP’s External Affairs Director, Mr. Michael Hoffmann.
“The new website aims at serving as a valid and reliable source of information for all interested parties, local, national, and international, by offering precise and direct information on all matters concerning the TAP project,” noted Mr. Hoffmann.
The TAP pipeline will transport natural gas from a major source, Shah Deniz II, in Azerbaijan, to Europe. The pipeline, to measure 870 kilometers in length, will connect with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline, TANAP, in Kipi, Evros, northeastern Greece, close to the Greek-Turkish border, and run through Greece, Albania, and the Adriatic Sea before remerging on land in southern Italy.
