TAP awards EPC contracts for pipeline sections

The Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP) has recently awarded the contracts for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of approximately 760km of cross-country onshore pipeline – 48 inches (1.2m) in diameter, in Greece and Albania. TAP’s construction is split into five lots (or sections), three lots in Greece and two lots in Albania.

The joint venture comprised of Bonatti S.p.A (Italy), an integral solution provider in oil & gas field activities and J&P AVAX S.A (Greece), one of the largest construction groups in Greece, have been awarded the EPC contract for two lots in northern Greece. SPIECAPAG (France) has been awarded the EPC contract for a 185km lot in Greece, between Kipoi and Kavala, as well as two lots in Albania (215km in total), stretching from Bilisht to Topoje. SPIECAPAG will also carry out the pipeline river crossing at the Greek-Turkish border, where TAP will be connecting to the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP).

Selected mobilisation of the EPC contractors will begin immediately and continue in the second quarter of 2016, in line with the project’s schedule to begin construction activities mid-2016.
