ENKA executed the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) services for the portion in Turkish territory for TANAP in collaboration with Bechtel Inc.
TANAP was designed to be a buried natural gas pipeline system including all of the above and subground facilities with a total length of 1,950 kilometers. The project consisted of the pipeline starting from the Turkish-Georgian border which then crosses 21 Turkish provinces ending at the Turkish-Greek border. It also included the facilities such as compressor stations, metering stations, off-take stations, block valve stations, SCADA, telecom and control systems, and other related equipment and installations inside Turkey. The pipeline dimensions, by design, were: 56” from Georgian border to Eskişehir and 48” from Eskişehir to the Greek border. When operating at high flow capacity, the pipeline system was designed to transport 31 billion m3 of natural gas annually, thus meeting its required specifications.
From mid-2014, “Work Order No. 1” including FEED works on the TANAP project were successfully completed. The scope of the work included the endorsement of the design basis, FEED surveys, permits, land acquisition activities and providing support for the procurement of long lead items and construction contractors’ tenders.
In this context, ENKA provided a strategic contribution to the project as a local partner of the engineering contractor and played a key role in the completion of FEED for the pipeline project with its local resources.
