TIRANA (Albania), December 3 (SeeNews) – The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) consortium said over 99% of the land reinstatement works on the onshore route of the gas pipeline in Albania, Greece and Italy have been completed.

The first TAP marker post was placed in Italy, indicating the location of the pipeline, the consortium said in a Twitter post late on Monday.

Last month, TAP said the pipeline project is over 90% complete, including engineering, procurement and construction.

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%.
