It is planned to complete the Lot 3 of the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) project one month earlier than the official completion date, Mustafa Kopuz, Project Manager of TANAP Project's Lot 3, told Trend Sept.8.
The $565 million worth Lot 3 of TANAP project is being implemented by Turkey’s Tekfen Construction.

The length of TANAP is 1,850 kilometers with an initial capacity of 16 billion cubic meters of gas. Around six billion cubic meters of this gas is meant to be delivered to Turkey, with the remaining volume to be supplied to Europe.
The project’s total cost is estimated at $8.6 billion.
