US based General Electric's oil and gas unit has won contract to provide advanced turbomachinery for the first phase of the Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline (TANAP) project, which is being constructed for gas transportation from Azerbaijan to Europe.

TANAP is being developed conjointly by the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR), Turkey's state-owned BOTAS (Petroleum Pipeline Corporation), and British BP. Under the multi-million dollar deal, GE Oil & Gas will deliver aeroderivative gas turbine driven centrifugal compressor packages for the project. Delivery is expected in 2017. The deal supports the commissioning of Phase 1 of TANAP expected to come online in 2018. 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.
