The ESIA process in Greece has so far included: the submission of TAP’s ESIA Scoping Report for the TAP’s Western Section in Greece in 2011 (from Thessaloniki), the Preliminary Environmental Impact Assessment for the TAP’s Western Section and submission of TAP’s Scoping Report for the TAP’s Eastern Section in Greece in 2012.

In June 2013, TAP submitted a full ESIA for completeness review to the Greek Ministry for Energy, Environment and Climate Change.
Once final comments have been received from the Greek Ministry for Energy, Environment & Climate Change, TAP will submit its final ESIA to the Greek authorities. TAP will also conduct public disclosure meetings with local and regional authorities, as well as with NGOs and communities living along the proposed pipeline route.
