EDT Shipmanagement Ltd has been awarded a pipeline transportation contract for the Offshore segment of the Trans Adriatic Pipeline connecting the shores of Albania (midpoint between Avlona & Dyrrachium) and Southern Italy (San Foca -  Ἅγιος Φωκᾶς;). This contract strengthens further our presence in the Adriatic / Ionian Seas through this very prestiguous EPCI Project that will bring Azeri Gas from Shah Deniz II to Europe through one of the longest pipelines in the world.

A few words about the Trans Adriatic Pipeline:

The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) will start near Kipoi on the border of Turkey and Greece, where it will connect with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP). From there, TAP will continue onshore, crossing the entire territory of Northern Greece, its longest stretch, then onwards east to west through Albania to the Adriatic coast. The offshore section of the pipeline will begin near the Albanian city of Fier and it will traverse the Adriatic Sea to tie into Italy’s gas transportation network in Southern Italy. TAP will be 878 kilometres in length (Greece 550 km; Albania 215 km; Adriatic Sea 105 km; Italy 8 km). Its highest point will be approximately 2,100 metres in Albania’s mountains, while its lowest will be 820 metres beneath the sea.
