IAP is a proposed natural gas pipeline in southeastern Europe that will stretch from Fier in central Albania, through Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina, to Split, Croatia.

It will then be connected with the Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) which is currently being constructed in Albania, Greece and Italy in order to bring gas from Azerbaijan to Europe.

Albanian energy minister Damian Gjiknuri said Friday that Albania had completed drafting a gas plan for the country, and had built good cooperation with both the energy community and the countries to be involved in the project.

Gjiknuri told reporters Albania was "confident that this project will also be supported by the European Union and United States."
