The Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline is not only a project for energy, but also one for peace, Turkey's Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has said, SIA reports quoting the AA.
Speaking on Tuesday in the Turkish capital of Ankara during the signing ceremony of a pipeline supply agreement for the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP), Davutoglu said: "The relations between Turkey and Azerbaijan are vital, as these countries complete against each other both geographically and in terms of energy potential.”
He said nearly 80 percent of the project's pipelines will be produced domestically, adding: “This proves the technical capacity of Turkish industry."
TANAP is the Turkish phase of the Southern Gas Corridor project which will carry gas from the Azerbaijan sector of the Caspian Sea to Turkey.
The initial capacity of the Southern Gas Corridor is planned to be 16 billion cubic meters of natural gas.
