Trans-Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) commissioning: five things to know

Report summary

Azerbaijan and Turkey today launched the 1,550 mmcfd (16 bcm per year) Trans-Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) in Eskisehir, Turkey. The pipeline forms the heart of the US$38 billion Southern Gas Corridor project, which will ultimately connect Azerbaijan to Italy. TANAP was delivered on schedule and under budget, setting a new benchmark for project delivery in the region. It will deliver 6 bcm per year of gas into Turkey from June 2018, with transit volumes to Europe from 2020. We address the five key questions from this landmark event: What drove the budget down to US$8 billion? What next for the Southern Gas Corridor? How will TANAP increase energy security in Turkey? What are the supply options for TANAP expansion? How will Azerbaijan meet its export and domestic needs?
