7.1.1-0007-ELAZ-S-M-17

This Action is part of the PCI 7.1.1 «Gas pipeline to the EU from Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan, via Georgia and Turkey, [currently known as the combination of “Trans-Caspian Gas Pipeline” (TCP), “Expansion of the South-Caucasus Pipeline” (SCP-(F) X) and “Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline” (TANAP)].

The main aim of the Action is to define the pre-Front-End Engineering Design (pre-FEED) of the Trans Caspian Pipeline (TCP) to transport natural gas from Turkmenistan to Azerbaijan crossing the Caspian Sea. The pre-FEED design is divided in two sections. An initial phase, where the basic data, engineering and preliminary routing will be established and a follow-up phase where the proposed route reconnaissance survey contracts will be defined and awarded and where the mechanical design will be developed to proceed with the FEED.

The implementation of the current Action will contribute to the further development of the PCI by establishing and evaluating the feasibility and basic cases for the routing and the mechanical design of the pipeline. The completion of the current Action will lead to a satisfactory level of development of the pre-FEED, enabling the implementation of a detailed FEED, including a reliable estimation of materials and costs needed for a successful development of the PCI.
