In the framework of the Trans-Adriatic gas pipeline (TAP) project, the construction and rehabilitation works on the territory of Albania have almost been completed, "APA-Economics" reports citing TAP consortium.

The pipes needed for construction of part of TAP passing through Albania were initially brought in the country in April 2016.

"After four years, the pipeline construction and rehabilitation works in Albania have almost been completed", the report says.

Note that the TAP pipeline, which is part of the Southern Gas Corridor project, is expected to transport 10 billion cubic meters of gas annually to Europe within the Shah Deniz-2 project. This pipeline will run through Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea to the south of Italy.

It is expected that Azerbaijani gas will be transported to Europe in the fourth quarter of 2020.
