MILAN (Reuters) – Gas will begin flowing through the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) to Italy by the end of this year as planned, TAP's managing director said Tuesday.
“At the end of the year, gas will flow and we can finally open the southern corridor,” said Luca Schieppati.
The 878 km long TAP pipeline is one of the cornerstones of the European Union's energy security policy aimed at reducing dependence on Russian gas.
