GECF Hails Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline Completion
Gas Exporting Countries Forum extends sincere congratulations to its Observer Member - the Republic of Azerbaijan, HE President Ilham Aliyev and HE Energy Minister Parviz Shahbazov on occasion of completion of the whole Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP). The Pipeline comprises the longest stretch of the Southern Gas Corridor, and is set to carry gas from the Caspian and Middle Eastern regions to Europe.
Completion of the TANAP and its connection with Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is another value-added to the provision of natural gas infrastructure. It is a development, that will no doubt strengthen the security of natural gas supply in the region and all over the world. Meanwhile, it is yet another accomplishment and contribution to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, especially the SDG #7.
Going by the number of national governments and businesses involved, the Southern Gas Corridor is a testament to the benefits of dialogue, cooperation and collaboration without which this goal may not have become the reality that it is today.
