Extended Case Study: Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline

The Trans-Anatolian natural gas pipeline (TANAP) aims to bring natural gas produced from Azerbaijan, and other areas of the Caspian Sea, primarily to Turkey, but also on to Europe. The 1850km pipeline runs from the Turkish border with Georgia traversing 20 provinces across the country and ends at the Greek border in the İpsala district of Edirne.

A comprehensive stakeholder engagement program has been undertaken for the project since 2013. TANAP has been using Darzin to document the stakeholder engagement activities, analyse stakeholder feedback, create reports to inform project decisions and demonstrate compliance to the lenders’ conditions. Darzin is also used by TANAP and their construction contractors to effectively manage grievances related to the pipeline construction, and land acquisition.
