This marks another significant milestone in the completion of the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC), a new energy route, which will increase energy security and diversification of energy supplies by bringing natural gas from Shah Deniz 2 gas field in the Caspian Sea to Turkey and, subsequently, European markets.

The golden weld was successfully completed under the supervision of TANAP and TAP representatives at the Turkish-Greek border.

Luca Schieppati, Managing Director for TAP said: “I am very pleased that another historic step forward has been taken this month. The connection of TAP with TANAP signals that we are moving towards the completion of the Southern Gas Corridor and will be delivering gas to Europe, according to our schedule in 2020. I would like to thank TANAP, the authorities, and the Governments and all those involved in making this connection a reality.
