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.

TAP is a part of the Southern Gas Corridor, which is one of the priority energy projects for the European Union.

The pipeline will connect to the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) on the Turkish-Greek border, run through Greece, #Albania and the Adriatic Sea, before coming ashore in Italy's south.
