The country started commercial gas supplies to Europe through the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline on December 31, 2020.
Azerbaijan's Energy Minister Parviz Shahbazov earlier said that the TAP, as another energy link connecting Azerbaijan with Europe, will strengthen Azerbaijan's strategic role in energy security, cooperation and sustainable development.
The pipeline is supplied by natural gas from the 2nd stage of Azerbaijan’s Shah Deniz gas field development.
The initial capacity of the pipeline is about 10 billion m3 of natural gas per year, with the option to expand the capacity up to 20 billion m3.
The Southern Gas Corridor is an initiative of the European Commission for a natural gas supply route from Caspian and Middle Eastern regions to Europe.
