Construction of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), which is designed for transportation of Azerbaijani gas to Europe, has been completed by 97%, TAP consortium told APA-Economics.
According to the Consortium, this is the figure recorded at the end of July.
It was noted that the works on the project are being carried out under the schedule.
Note that the TAP pipeline, which is a part of the Southern Gas Corridor project, will initially supply Europe with 10 billion cubic meters of gas produced within the framework of the Shah Deniz-2 project annually. On the territory of Kipoi, near the Turkish-Greek border, the pipeline will be connected to the Trans-Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) and run through Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea to southern Italy.
Azerbaijani gas is planned to be delivered to Europe in 2020.
