On Nov. 30, 2019, Ipsala, a small and wonderful town with a surface area of 753 square kilometers and a population of 30,000, located in Turkey's Edirne province hosted a very important historic event for Europe. On this day, the city hosted the opening ceremony of TANAP, the 1,850-kilometer-long gas pipeline from the Turkish province of Erdahan onward to Europe. With this historic event, the export of Azerbaijani gas to Turkey and Europe became a reality.
TANAP is the key pillar and the most important part of the 3,500-kilometer-long energy corridor stretching from Azerbaijan to Europe. Once launched, the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), which will connect with TANAP on the Greek border, will lay the foundation of the first-ever direct transport of Azerbaijani natural gas from the Caspian basin to European markets. The $38-billion-worth TANAP project was a logical continuation of the strategic course designed and followed by Azerbaijan and Turkey to contribute to energy security of the Southern Gas Corridor involving seven European countries.
The European Union represents three out of the seven countries covered by the Southern Gas Corridor. As the main segment of this corridor, TANAP will deliver gas from the Shah Deniz-2 gas condensate field in the Azerbaijani sector of the Caspian Sea to European consumers. TANAP connects to Europe, TAP from the route of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Turkey and continues onward to involve Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Albania, Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
