TANAP and TAP Complete Pipeline Connection

Earlier this month, the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) and the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) successfully completed their connection with the final “golden weld”, which physically connected the two pipelines. 

 

This marks another significant milestone in the completion of the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC), a new energy route, which will increase energy security and diversification of energy supplies by bringing natural gas from “Shah Deniz 2” gas field in the Caspian Sea to Turkey and, subsequently, to European markets.  

 

The golden weld was successfully completed under the supervision of TANAP and TAP representatives at the Turkish-Greek border.
