‘We have no other option’ – Preparation of the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline in Albania
Study | 4 August 2016
The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), the most western part of the Southern Gas Corridor, a pipeline project to bring gas from Azerbaijan to Europe is promoted by the European Commission as a strategic asset for Europe’s energy security.
