The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) transported 8.1 standard billion cubic meters (bcm) of natural gas to Europe since operations launched on Dec. 31, 2020 up to Dec. 31 last year, the company announced in a Twitter statement late on Thursday.
Of this total capacity, over 6.8 bcm reached Italy, while approximately 1.2 bcm was delivered to Greece and Bulgaria.
TAP is an essential part of the Southern Gas Corridor, offering a direct and cost-effective transportation route to southeast European countries and beyond.
It transports natural gas from the Caspian basin to Europe, connecting with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) at the Greek-Turkish border, crossing Northern Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea before coming ashore in southern Italy to connect to the Italian natural gas network.
