Context and challenges
Extending for 1850 kilometers with 56” diameter pipes, Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline is the longest and largest-diameter natural gas pipeline in Turkey, the Middle East and Europe. It passes through 20 provinces, 67 districts and 600 villages. The construction of the project was initiated in 2015. In 2018, gas transmission started.
This client, an oil and gas company, is to carry an annual volume of 6 billion cubic meters of Azeri natural gas to Turkey via South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP), and it is to form the Southern Natural Gas Corridor with the Trans-Atlantic Pipeline (TAP) to deliver 10 billion cubic meters of gas per annum to Europe.
The transmission capacity of the pipeline is capable of increasing to 24 billion cubic meters, and then to 31 billion cubic meters upon realisation of additional investments in 2026.
This client has appointed Assystem Envy to perform site surveys (siting and impact studies) including physical and ecological monitoring and environmental samplings.
