11 million cubic meters of gas pass daily in Albania – 215 km of pipelines in our country cover 13% of Italy’s need for methane
This year has found the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) fully operational. After almost 4 years of work, the project supplies Europe with Azerbaijani gas, somewhat reducing the European Union’s dependence on Russian gas, as well as achieving one of the union’s most strategic objectives. Currently, there are millions of cubic meters of gas which pass every day through the pipelines in our country, to “land” later in the neighboring country, Italy.
According to the data which are updated daily by “Snam”, the Italian company which is also present in Albania offering the maintenance of pipelines, every day in Italy are transported about 10 million cubic meters of gas. Looking at the updated data of January 7, it is noticed that there are about 11 million cubic meters of gas that is projected to be transported to the point of Melendugno in Puglia, Italy.
This amount of gas passes through 215 kilometers of pipeline within the territory of the Republic of Albania, and meets about 13% of the neighboring state’s need for methane gas. Initially, TAP is projected to transport about 10 billion cubic meters of gas a year, of which 8 to Italy and 1 billion to Greece and Bulgaria. The figures show that, at present, TAP is operating at only 1/3 of its originally designed capacity.
