Offshore staff

ROME – Gianluca Galletti, Italy’s Environment minister, has signed a decree of environmental compatibility for the Italian section of the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) project.

TAP will transport natural gas from the Shah Deniz II field development in the Azeri sector to markets in eastern and southern Europe.

The 870-km (540-mi) long pipeline will traverse an onshore route through the Balkan states, with the final section crossing the Adriatic Sea to make landfall in southeast Italy.
