Greece is now supplied with natural gas from Azerbaijan, as the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is ready and the delivered natural gas is already in use, said the director of the national natural gas company DEPA, Konstantinos Xifaras, reports DPA.
“The start of deliveries is a turning point,” said Konstantinos Xifaras.
Earlier, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov also announced that Bulgaria had begun receiving Azerbaijani natural gas from the Caspian Sea, an important step towards diversifying energy supplies. “Today we can declare a total diversification,” of gas supply and transit sources, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov said, according to Agerpres.
The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is the first non-Russian gas pipeline to supply Europe after the Medgaz connection, which in 2011 began delivering gas from Algeria to Spain.
