Gas infrastructure, Greece-Albania
Gas pipelines are a reliable and cost-effective way to transport natural gas from the wellhead to the consumer. Once connected to the Trans Anatolian Pipeline at the Greek-Turkish border and to the Italian natural gas network, the 878-km TransAdriatic Pipeline will bring natural gas from Azerbaijan’s Shah Deniz II field to Europe.
After taking part in two high-profile projects – the PNG LNG project in Papua New Guinea as part of an Exxon-led consortium, and the Incahuasi project in Bolivia as part of a Total-led consortium – Spiecapag will now build one of the three sections of the 185 km onshore gas pipeline between Kipoi and Kavala, Greece under an EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) contract for the Pipeline AG international consortium. It will also build two other pipeline sections with a combined length of 215 km between Bilisht and Topojë, Albania.
