Offshore staff

BAAR, Switzerland – The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) has submitted its single authorization application to the Ministry of Economic Development in Italy. The submission is a key step toward obtaining the final permits and authorizations for construction and operation of TAP’s gas pipeline in Italy.

The Italian Ministry will consult with municipal, provincial, regional and central authorities; a process that will be conducted in parallel with TAP’s environmental impact assessment process which was launched earlier in 2011.

Kjetil Tungland, managing director of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline, said: “This constitutes another key submission from TAP in recent months towards obtaining final permits in all our host countries, allowing TAP to initiate construction and operation to bring Caspian gas from Shah Deniz into European markets (expected in 2017/2018).”
