The Turkish minister stressed that TANAP and TAP are of great importance to Europe as these projects are alternative sources of gas and create a competitive environment in the sale of gas in the region.

He went on to say that although Europe spoke for years about the NABUCCO project, it could not be realized.

“Thanks to the joint participation of Azerbaijan and Turkey, it was managed to implement such important projects for Europe. Therefore, gas from other countries can be transported via this pipeline in the future,” said Albayrak.

He noted these projects also underscore Turkey’s role in ensuring Europe’s energy security.
