TRANS ADRIATIC PIPELINE, 50% COMPLETED

The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is now more than 50% completed, nearly 16 months after construction began. This includes all engineering, procurement and construction scope. As of early-September 2017, TAP’s contractors have cleared approximately 70% of the project route in Greece and Albania (539 km out of 765 km). Also, over 45% of welded steel pipes are already in the ground (backfilled). Approximately 95% of the total 55,000 pipes to be used for the construction of the pipeline have been received in Greece, Albania and Italy. The last shipment of offshore line pipes has been offloaded in Brindisi, Italy, between 3 and 6 September 2017. TAP remains on its journey to deliver world-class health and safety performance across Greece, Albania and Italy. To date, the teams have collectively worked over 16 million manhours and driven approximately 43 million kilometres without a major incident.
TAP has implemented a wide range of social and environmental investment (SEI) programmes in the communities along its route. Substantial projects are due to be rolled out in the upcoming months. In total, TAP will invest over €55 million in SEI in Greece, Albania and Italy.
“We are pleased that TAP continues to progress on time and on budget. We therefore remain on track to deliver the first Shah Deniz II gas in 2020, bringing a much-needed new source of energy into the European energy network,” TAP Managing Director Luca Schieppati said. “I want to underline that our project is built with the utmost care for the environment. Our teams are working very carefully along our route to ensure that the land on which construction has been completed is returned to the owners or users in its original condition or better. We are also collaborating with local authorities and local stakeholders to ensure that the benefits of our project are tangible across all those communities crossed by the pipeline,” Schieppati added.
