The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) AG and the Greek National Natural Gas System Operator (DESFA) SA signed an agreement with a 5-year timescale. DESFA will be in charge for the maintenance of TAP facilities spreading 550 km out of the Greek section. The project will start from the prevenient support of TAP’s commercial operation in 2020.

Luca Schieppati, TAP’s Managing Director, comments that the company looks forward to continuing to cooperate with DESFA in the future. She notes that TAP’s next steps are the 105 km offshore installation of the pipeline and the commissioning process. President of TAP, Walter Peeraer, also adds that DESFA’s support will be significant in order to safely transport natural gas to Europe and to expand energy supplies. DESFA’s President and CEO, Sotirios Nikas, says the contract will lead to creating specialized jobs, increasing DESFA’s profit from non-regulated services.

You will have the opportunity to learn more about the project firsthand at the Midstream Oil and Gas Congress MOGC 2019 in Greece. Katerina Mouzouraki (Communications Manager at Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG Greece) will tell about all renovations. MOGC 2019 is dedicated to Oil and Gas Transportation via pipelines and will take place in Thessaloniki Makedonia Palace Hotel, 18-19 February, 2019.
