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

The 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.
There 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. 
Work 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.
