The volume of natural gas transportation via the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), the final leg of the Southern Gas Corridor, has reached 7 billion cubic meters, Trend reports with reference to TAP AG consortium.

The consortium said that TAP contributed to containing the increase in the cost of gas to strengthening safety and diversification of the gas supply.
