TAP is a natural gas pipeline project that will supply natural gas from Azerbaijans largest natural gas field Shah Deniz II via Greece and Albania and across the Adriatic Sea to Italy and Western Europe. The 520-km pipeline would open a new southern gas corridor to Europe. TAP is owned by Swiss EGL (42.5%), Norwegian Statoil (42.5%) and German E.ON Ruhrgas (15%). The Albanian government and the TAP consortium signed in July 2011 a memorandum of understating and co-operation to jointly develop energy projects. TAP intends also to connect the gas pipeline with the transport networks of Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro through the so called Ionian Adriatic Pipeline, which will make Albania a regional gas transport hub.
