The Trans-Anatolian Gas Pipeline (TANAP) will launch in July, Turkish Energy and Natural Resources Minister Berat Albayrak said at a Southern Gas Corridor Advisory Council meeting in Baku on Thursday.

Earlier in the day, Albayrak said at a meeting with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev that testing on TANAP began in January 2018.

TANAP accounts for more than half of the 3,500 km Southern Gas Corridor pipeline system planned to run from Azerbaijan to Italy.
