U.S. Company to Supply Turbo Compressors for TANAP

General Electric Oil and Gas Company, a well-known U.S. company engaged in building appliances, lighting, power systems and other products, will supply modern turbo compressors for the first phase of the Trans-Anatolian Pipeline project.

High pressure compressors produced by GE Oil & Gas are more suitable for TANAP, as they differ for the lowest emission level.

According to a few million-dollar agreement on aeroderivative gas turbines which is considered the "heart" of pipelines, they will be produced and tested in Florence, Italy and handed over to the partners in 2017.

The first phase of the TANAP project will be implemented in the first half of 2018.

GE Oil & Gas produces more than 50 percent of energy generated on the basis of gas in Turkey's four cities.

TANAP envisages the transportation of gas of Azerbaijan's Shah Deniz field from the Georgian-Turkish border to the western borders of Turkey. TANAP's initial capacity is expected to reach 16 billion cubic meters of gas per year. Around six billion cubic meters of this gas will be delivered to Turkey and the rest of the volume to Europe.

Turkey will receive gas in 2018, and after the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) is constructed the gas will be delivered to Europe in early 2020.

BP and the TANAP consortium signed a shareholder agreement on March 13, according to which, BP will become one of the shareholders of TANAP. The agreement is one of the main documents for BP's ownership of a stake in the TANAP project.

Following the completion of a legal implementation procedure, TANAP's shareholders list will be as follows: SOCAR – 58 percent, Botas – 30 percent and BP – 12 percent.

The heads of Azerbaijan, Turkey and Georgia have laid the foundation of the TANAP pipeline in the Turkish Kars province on March 17, 2015.
