Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Azeri counterpart Ilham Aliyev attended the ceremony held in the district of Ipsala in Turkey's Edirne province bordering Greece.
"A dream of supplying 16 billion cubic meters of Azeri natural gas to Turkey and Europe has come true," Erdogan said at the ceremony.
At a cost of some seven billion U.S. dollars, the TANAP will deliver six billion cubic meters of Azeri gas to Turkey and 10 billion to Europe each year.
The Southern Gas Corridor's last part will end in Italy after passing through Greece and Albania, constituting the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline. ■
