The Albanian partners handed the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) the Philanthropy Award for its social contribution at the national level.
Representatives of the Albanian Government, Albanian Parliament, and diplomatic corps accredited in Tirana, Albanian and foreign companies and non-governmental organizations joined the awards ceremony for 2018.
TAP has been nominated for the Philanthropy Award as a national company for 2018 by the Catalyst Balkans Foundation. This regional foundation monitors and encourages the social investments of private companies.
The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) will transport natural gas from the giant Shah Deniz 2 field in Azerbaijan via Greece, Albania to southern Italy and further to Europe.
