TAP pipeline can be expanded without TANAP too



Expansion of the Trans-Anatolian Pipeline (TAP) is possible at an early stage without increasing the transmission capacity of the Trans-Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP), SOCAR Vice President for Personnel, Regime and Information Technologies, spokesman for the company Ibrahim Ahmadov said at an online press conference commenting on the possibility of expanding TANAP in the light of geopolitical processes in the world, APA-Economics reports.

According to him, the issue of increasing gas export to Europe through the Southern Gas Corridor mostly depends on the decisions of the TAP pipeline consortium. Azerbaijan is represented by SOCAR in this consortium. The company is not a major shareholder and owns only 20% of the shares.”
