Baku, Azerbaijan, Mar.16
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Security of the Trans-Anatolian Gas Pipeline (TANAP) in Turkey will be provided at the highest level, the Turkish agency Anadolu reported Mar.16 with reference to the statement of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources of Turkey.
The statement said that a special system will be created in order to provide security for TANAP gas pipeline.
The TANAP project envisages the transportation of gas of Azerbaijan's Shah Deniz field from the Georgian-Turkish border to the western borders of Turkey.
TANAP's initial capacity is expected to reach 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year. Around six billion cubic meters of this gas will be delivered to Turkey and the rest of the volume to Europe.
Turkey will obtain gas in 2018. The gas will be supplied to Europe in early 2020 after the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is constructed.
