TAP confirms pipeline route extention in Greece

09 August 2011

Further to the Financial Times article published on 8 August 2011, the Trans Adriatic Pipeline can confirm that it has extended its route from Thessaloniki in Greece by 300km and will now connect to the Turkish Greek Interconnector in Komotini.
