Enagás in the world
Trans Adriatic Pipeline
Enagás boasts a 16% stake in the company that develops the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) project.
This project involves the construction of an 878 km long pipeline linking Turkey and Italy and running through Greece and Albania, including the associated compressor stations. The pipeline will run for 550 km through Greece, 215 km through Albania, 8 km through Italy and 105 km offshore under the Adriatic Sea, with an initial capacity of 10 bcma (billion cubic metres per annum). In line with the timetable of the Shah Deniz field in the Caspian Sea, first gas deliveries of gas to TAP in Europe are scheduled for 2020.
The TAP is part of the so-called Southern Gas Corridor, a project designed to supply Europe with natural gas from the Caspian Sea, which will help guarantee the EU's energy security.
TAP was included as a Project of Common Interest (PCI) by the European Union in 2013, 2015 and 2017 and is key to integrate the European gas market.
