TIRANA (Albania), July 23 (SeeNews) – The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) consortium said that around 95% of the land reinstatement works on the onshore route of the gas pipeline in Albania, Greece and Italy have been completed.

“Business as usual above the TAP pipeline. Agriculture resumes after land reinstatement,” the consortium said in a Twitter post late on Monday.

Last month, the consortium said the project is more than 88% completed, including engineering procurement and construction scope.

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%.
