TIRANA (Albania), March 19 (SeeNews) – The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) consortium said that over 90% of the land reinstatement works on the route of the gas pipeline in Greece and Albania have been completed.

This final stage of onshore activities has been completed on 695 km out of 765 km of the route, the consortium said in a Twitter post on Monday.

“Business as usual above the TAP pipeline. Agriculture resumes after land reinstatement,” TAP said.

Connecting with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) at Greece's border with Turkey, TAP will stretch across northern Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea before reaching Italy's coast where it will connect to the Italian natural gas network.

TAP is part of the Southern Gas Corridor, which also comprises the South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP) crossing Azerbaijan and Georgia, and TANAP.

The shareholders of TAP are BP, Azerbaijan’s state company Socar and Italy’s Snam with 20% each, Belgium’s Fluxys with 19%, Spain’s Enagas with 16% and Swiss-based Axpo with 5%.
