Albania - Kosovo Gas Pipeline (ALKOGAP)

Albania - Kosovo Gas Pipeline (ALKOGAP)

Project Description

The project aims to establish a new supply route for natural gas from the Middle East and Caspian Region transported by Trans Adriatic Pipeline, north-eastwards of the Western Balkans area towards Serbia. It thus plans to interconnect existing and planned gas transmission system of Albania with the future gas transmission system of Kosovo, as well as the transmission interconnectors which are part of the eastern branch of Energy Community Gas Ring (ECGR). 

The WBIF provided a €300,000 EU grant for the pre-feasibility study for the project. The Study is now complete and was prepared by the Infrastructure Project Facility 4. If constructed, the project will enable the gasification of Albania and Kosovo and thus provide a diversified and reliable natural gas supply to both countries, whose impact on the environment should be lower than the current fuels (firewood, coal, fuel oil).
