Croatia and Montenegro to connect to TAP gas pipeline

The line will link Azerbaijani gas to Europe, but Balkan want some for their own energy resources

With Turkey breaking ground on 17 March on the gas pipeline that will bring Azerbaijani gas directly to Europe, Balkan countries are busy manoeuvring to feed into this flow of gas and develop the region’s own energy resources. When the entire link is operational, at the end of 2018, the Trans Anatolian Gas Pipeline (TANAP) will carry an initial 16 billion cubic metres a year (cm/y) of Azerbaijani gas to European markets via Turkey, thus reducing the bloc’s energy dependence on Russia. From the Turkey-Greece border, 10bn cm/y of that gas will be transferred to the planned 20bn cm/y Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), which will pipe it through Greece and Albania, and then across the Adriatic to It
