The TAP route will be approximately 870 kilometres in length (Approx.: Greece 550 km; Albania 205 km; offshore Adriatic Sea 110 km; Italy 5 km). TAP’s highest elevation point will be 1800 meters in Albania’s mountains, while its lowest part offshore will be at 810 meters of depth.
The onshore part of the pipeline will have a diameter of 48 inches (1.2 meters), while the diameter of the offshore segment will be 36 inches (0.91 meters.)
The thickness of the steel pipe wall will be 17.5 -31 mm (four pipe sections) for the onshore part, with 21-34 millimeters for the offshore part. The onshore pipeline's total weight will be approximately 400 000 metric tons, or 500 kilo per meter pipe in average, and offshore approximately 70 000 tons.
Please, note that the above mentioned figures are estimations and can change as the project develops.
