TAP is responsible for the development and operation of the gas transportation infrastructure from the Greece/Turkey border to Southern Italy.
Once operational, TAP will provide transportation capacity that enables interested parties to market their gas on the European markets.
TAP will bring Caspian natural gas to Europe. Starting at the border of Greece and Turkey, where it will connect with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP), TAP will cross Northern Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea to Southern Italy, where it will connect to the Italian gas transportation grid.
TAP’s shareholding is comprised of BP (20%), SOCAR (20%), Snam (20%), Fluxys (19%), Enagás (16%) and Axpo (5%).
TAP AG has its headquarters in Baar, Switzerland and has several offices in Greece, Albania and Italy. Currently, TAP employs approximately 200 oil and gas specialists from many countries and engages hundreds of contracted service company experts.
TAP will not own or sell the gas it transports. Gas sales agreements have been negotiated directly by the Shah Deniz Consortium with gas buyers in Europe.
