Turkey will never abandon TANAP - FM

The Trans-Anatolian gas pipeline (TANAP) construction project has special importance for Turkey, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in an interview with Anadolu agency.

Ankara will never abandon the implementation of such an important project, he said. Ankara and Baku exerted much effort for this project implementation, he said.

Cavusoglu added that there are no obstacles for TANAPs implementation.

Cavusoglu has recently said in Ashgabat that Turkey and Azerbaijan urge Turkmenistan to take part in the implementation of the Trans-Anatolian gas pipeline construction project.

The TANAP project envisages the transportation of gas of Azerbaijans Shah Deniz field from the Georgian-Turkish border to the western borders of Turkey. TANAPs initial capacity is expected to reach 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year.

Around six billion cubic meters will be delivered to Turkey and the rest of the volume to Europe. Turkey will obtain gas in 2018. The gas will be supplied to Europe in early 2020 after the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is constructed. The projects cost is estimated at $10-$11 billion.

Contracts for the supply of pipes for the construction of TANAP were signed in Turkeys Ankara on Oct.14 with six Turkish and one Chinese company.

Turkeys Mannesmann-Noksel-Erciyas and Umran-Emek consortiums, and the company Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi, as well as the Chinese contractor Baosteel Europe won the tender for the supply of pipes for the TANAP project.

All the companies that will participate in the construction and supply of the TANAP project in Turkey are exempt from the VAT.
