TAP Market Test

On 1 July 2019, Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP) launches a Market Test, the commercial process through which natural gas shippers can get access to new, long-term capacity in TAP, thereby enabling the future expansion of the pipeline capacity.  

TAP conducts its 2019 Market Test under the rules and procedures specified in the “Guidelines for the 2019 Market Test of Trans Adriatic Pipeline” (link), approved by the National Regulatory Authorities of Greece, Italy and Albania.  

The Market Test process is an open, transparent and non-discriminatory procedure, enabling the access of third parties to TAP’s transportation system.

TAP’s Market Test is structured in 2 (two) main phases:

  • Binding phase: expected to start earliest in Q2 2020.
