The Trans Adriatic Pipeline begins the formal Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) process, with the submission of the Scoping Report. The document was presented to the Albanian national and regional authorities, as well as to more than 100 other relevant stakeholders. It meets the Best Practice Guidelines laid down by the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
TAP finalizes route refinement study of the pipeline section between Thessaloniki and the Greek-Albanian border. More than 50 national and international experts conducted comprehensive and detailed studies of a 50 km wide corridor. Three extensive field missions were organised in northern Greece to identify geological, environmental and cultural heritage constraints as well as safety and social concerns.
TAP hosts a seminar in the European Parliament in Brussels on the issues of the Southern Gas Corridor development and TAP’s contribution towards its realisation. This event is organized with the support of the Italian Members of the Parliament Patrizia Toia and Amalia Sartori. The participants of the seminar will include Italian MEPs, representatives of various Italian institutions and Italian industry associations in Brussels.
Message from Kjetil Tungland, Managing Director of TAP. "It will be a momentous year, with critically important decisions due to be made that will not only determine the future of TAP and other pipeline projects in the Southern Gas Corridor, but will also have a profound and lasting impact on Europe’s energy security."
