The Marmara sea crossing phase of the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) commenced this week. The project aspires to carry Azeri natural gas to Europe via Turkey when completed.

Natural gas pipes are being laid at the bottom of the sea by a specially equipped vessel. The 153-meter-long Panamanian vessel, named “Sapurakencana 1200” and weighing 32,504 gross tons, has started laying pipes on the shore of Kemer village in the district of Biga in Çanakkale Province. Thus, the first sea connection of TANAP on land has started.

Azeri natural gas will completely reach European countries, its final destination, when the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), which forms the third leg of the project and has a length of approximately 500 kilometers, is completed.

Starting from Ardahan on the border of Georgia, the 1.850-kilometer-long TANAP will reach İpsala in Edirne Province on the Greek border after passing through 20 cities in Turkey.
