TANAP head proposes opening pipeline up to Turkmen and Iraqi gas fields

Iraqi gas fieldThe Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) should eventually carry gas from Iraq and Turkmenistan as well as from Azerbaijan its CEO Dr Saltuk Düzyol said over the weekend. If he gets his way, the addition of two new sources of gas being transported westwards would help reduce EU dependency on Russian gas even further.
TANAP Chief Saltuk DuzyolThere are several natural gas fields in northern Iraq that could be linked up to the pipeline, according to Duzyol, as well as the disputed and undeveloped Kyapaz (aka Serdar) offshore field that lies under the waters of the Caspian Sea between Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan. 
TANAPWork began on the $10bn TANAP pipeline in March last year and the first gas from Azerbaijan’s giant Shah Deniz 2 field is due to start flowing through it into Turkey and from there to Europe in June 2018. Once completed the pipeline will run for 1,850km to Greece where it will connect up with the TAP Trans Adriatic Pipeline that will carry the gas under the Adriatic onto Italy.
