Pipeline construction in Albania
Post in ACERC 17-06-2015

TAP’s route through Albania is approximately 211 kilometres onshore and 37 km offshore in the Albanian section of the Adriatic Sea. It starts at Bilisht Qendër in the Korça region at the Albanian border with Greece, and arrives at the Adriatic coast 17 km north-west of Fier, 400 metres inland from the shoreline.

A compressor station will be built near Fier, and an additional compressor is planned near Bilisht should capacity be expanded to 20 billion cubic metres (bcm). Nine block valve stations will be built along its route.

In the mountainous areas, approximately 51 km of new access roads will be constructed while 41 km of existing roads will be upgraded, 42 bridges refurbished and three new bridges built. This work is planned to start in 2015.

Work at each construction ‘spread’ is typically estimated to last for approximately three to six months. As elsewhere on TAP’s route, the pipeline will be buried underground.

Please note that all figures mentioned in the text are estimates and can change as the project develops.
