BAKU, Azerbaijan, April 14. The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) AG consortium will install ecofriendly structures on San Foca's seabed in Italy to protect the marine environment, Trend reports with reference to the consortium.

“We invested in EconcreteL's bio-sustainable technology to prevent trawling damaging the seabed. The structures will provide shelter to marine species, benefiting fishermen,” reads a message on TAP AG’s Twitter.

Avoiding and minimising environmental and social impacts, and implementing mitigation, management and rehabilitation processes is central to TAP’s principles. These principles exist form the foundation of the pipeline’s operations and the TAP ESCH management system.

The pipeline route and aboveground facilities’ locations have been selected carefully to avoid ESCH sensitivities wherever possible. TAP facilities operate in compliance with the three host countries’ national requirements, the relevant European Union Directives and TAP’s governance requirements.

As the European section of the Southern Gas Corridor, TAP has the capacity to transport approximately 10 billion cubic meters of gas per annum (bcm/a) to several markets in Europe. The pipeline is also designed with the potential to expand its throughput capacity up to 20 bcm/a.

TAP is strategically and economically important to Europe and essential in providing reliable access to a new source of natural gas. TAP plays a significant role in boosting Europe’s energy security, supply diversification, as well as decarbonisation objectives.

TAP’s shareholding is comprised of bp (20 percent), SOCAR (20 percent), Snam (20 percent), Fluxys (19 percent), Enagás (16 percent) and Axpo (5 percent).
