Northern Macedonian’s Prime Minister Zoran Zaev is expected to visit Athens in early May to sign a treaty promoting a pipeline gas interconnection project linking the two Balkan country’s gas networks, APA-Economics reports citing "Pipeline Technology Journal" magazine.

This new 50 km North Macedonia-Greece gas interconnector natural gas pipeline interconnection is to be built by the Greek natural gas pipeline operator DESFA. The pipeline interconnector will link the Greek transmission pipeline network at a valve station near the northern port city of Thessalonica with the Macedonian border at Evzoni (Gevgelija). Here it will connect with the newly completed Trans-Adriatic pipeline which carries gas from central Asia via Turkey, Greece and Albania to southern Italy. The Macedonian section of the pipeline interconnection is already complete.

Remind that Azerbaijani gas is transported through TAP.
