Trans Adriatic Pipeline takes onshore step

Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) has issued a prequalification notice with the European Union for an engineering, procurement, and construction contract covering onshore work in Greece and Albania (OGJ Online, Dec. 18, 2013).

The contract encompasses 760 km of 48-in. natural gas pipeline and 32 block-valve stations.

The 870-km TAP will be part of the system that will carry gas from Shah Deniz II field in the Caspian Sea to Europe. It will connect with the Trans-Anatolian Pipeline near the Turkish-Greek border at Kipoi and include a section crossing the Adriatic Sea with landfall in southern Italy.

TAP, based in Baar, Switzerland, expects onshore pipeline construction to begin in 2016, with three segments in Greece and two in Albania. The highest elevation is 1,800 m in Albania.

The group issued a prequalification notice in April for a contract covering construction of roads and bridges in Albania.
