Celebrating the grand opening of TANAP’s Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline
WorleyParsons is proud to be part of this industry-changing megaproject

The 1,850 km Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline was opened this week at a ceremony held in Eskişehir, northwestern Turkey, attended by Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Azerbaijan President, Ilham Aliyev, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus President, Mustafa Akıncı, Serbian President, Aleksandar Vučić, and Ukrainian President, Petro Poroshenko, as well as WorleyParsons CEO Andrew Wood.

John Milford, WorleyParsons Major Projects’ Director said: “As the largest diameter pipeline ever built and the ninth longest in the world, this project has been challenging but incredibly rewarding, too. More than 1,260 WorleyParsons employees have been involved in the project from every corner of the world, including China, India, Australia, America, South Africa, Canada and the UK – it was this global operation that made it quite unique.”

The four-year project involved an integrated team from WorleyParsons, working with TANAP, and is the largest pipeline project ever delivered by the company. “The biggest challenge working on a project of this scale was meeting the world-class safety, environmental, timescale and budget targets,” says Milford. “However, we have bettered every single one and the team worked incredibly hard to ensure this project was a success.”

Engineering and Design Group Manager for TANAP and Package Director for WorleyParsons, Alper Tasdemir, said: “This project is the gas bridge between the Caspian Sea and Europe – it’s incredibly important, not just from a gas supply safety point of view, but because it will create more options in the market and open many jobs to people in Turkey, Greece, Italy, Albania, Georgia and Azerbaijan. The figures are impressive, too. At 56 inches (1.4 meters), which is about the height of a 10-year-old child, it’s the biggest diameter pipe ever and can pump 31 billion cubic meters per annum.”

Both Milford and Tasdemir are honest about the challenges of the TANAP project. “On a megaproject of this scale, the hard part is managing such a large team,” said Tasdemir, “But the big team also meant that when it came to technical issues, we had this incredible global bank of knowledge to draw on, in order to solve them.”

“The success of the Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline showcases WorleyParsons’ capabilities in pipeline megaprojects,” Milford added.

When asked what the highlight of the project was, both Milford and Tasdemir were clear in their answer – the opening ceremony on 12 June. “Seeing the pipeline filled with gas. Knowing that your design works. That’s always going to be the best moment for me,” confirmed Tasdemir.
