TAP, DESFA Sign Cooperation Agreement

TAP, DESFA Sign Cooperation Agreement

The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) signed a cooperation agreement with Greek natural gas transmission system operator, DESFA, TAP said.

TAP and DESFA plan to enter into an agreement on day-to-day technical operation and maintenance for the Greek section of the TAP pipeline. Other joint activities will include the review of interconnection points with the DESFA pipeline system to further enhance security of supply and technical cooperation.
The agreement follows the announcement on Friday that TAP has been chosen by the Shah Deniz Consortium in Azerbaijan as the best pipeline route to export Azerbaijani gas to Europe.
The longest section of the TAP pipeline will be in Greece. The Greek section of the pipeline will start at Kipoi at the Turkish-Greek border, and will cover some 550 km entering Albania northwest of Dipotamia. As such, the project will support Greece’s ambition of becoming an important "Energy Highway." Furthermore, the planned interconnection points and reverse flow capability of TAP will also support security of supply for other countries in the region.
