Contractors of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) project, which envisages transportation of gas from #Azerbaijan to Europe, have cleared over 45 percent of TAP's route running in #Greece and Albania, TAP AG consortium said in a message on Twitter Apr. 19.

Around 360 kilometers (47 percent) of TAP's 765-kilometer section in these countries are ready for the next construction steps, said the tweet.

TAP will be 878 kilometers in length (Greece 550 kilometers, #Albania 215 kilometers, Adriatic Sea 105 kilometers, and #Italy 8 kilometers). Its highest point will be 1,0 meters in Albania's mountains, while its lowest point will be 820 meters beneath the sea.
