BAKU, Azerbaijan, Dec.6
By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:
Starting from 1st October 2021, around 0.2 bcm of natural gas has been transported towards Hungary on the new pipeline, connecting to Serbia, Hungarian transmission system operator FGSZ told Trend.
“The Serbian-Hungarian natural gas interconnector has started commercial operation on 1st October 2021, so there is no more technical implementation to be done. We are working on field rearranging and recultivation,” said the company.
The Southern Gas Corridor, which is comprised of Shah Deniz 2, the South Caucasus Pipeline Expansion, the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP), and the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) became fully operational on December 31, 2020.
Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) AG confirmed on Dec. 31, 2020 the commencement of gas flows from Azerbaijan. The first gas has reached Greece and Bulgaria, via the Nea Mesimvria interconnection point with DESFA, as well as Italy, via the Melendugno interconnection point with SNAM Rete Gas (SRG).
