Italian Ministry of Economic Development issues Single Authorisation Permit for TAP in Italy

20 May 2015

 

The Italian Government has today announced that it has granted Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) its Single Authorisation Permit. The Single Authorisation is a key permit that allows TAP to move ahead with the start of pipeline construction in 2016.

TAP would like to thank the Italian Government and all those involved in the process for granting the Single Authorisation permit.  This allows TAP to now move ahead with the start of pipeline construction in 2016.  TAP will also continue to respect local needs and work closely with local communities to ensure they remain fully informed of the process as the project moves forward.

TAP will be ready to transport gas from Shah Deniz II to Europe in early 2020.
