Ionian-Adriatic Pipeline (IAP)

The IAP project has been based on the idea of connecting the existing gas transmission system of Croatia via Montenegro and Albania with the TAP gas transmission system (Trans Adriatic Pipeline). The total length of the gas pipeline from Split to the Albanian city of Fieri equals 511 km. On the territory of Croatia the construction of four sections and a compressor station in Dugopolje has been planned. The mentioned sections are: Split – Zagvozd (52 km), Zagvozd – Ploče (50 km), Ploče – Dubrovnik (103 km) and Dubrovnik – Prevlaka – Dobreč (MN) in the length of 47 km. 
The gas pipeline capacity of 5 bcm/y has been planned for natural gas supply of Albania (1 bcm/y), Montenegro (0.5 bcm/y), Bosnia and Herzegovina (1 bcm/y) and Croatia (2.5 bcm/y).
The implementation of this project will enable the gasification of Montenegro and Albania, as well as the southern part of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. 
The implementation of the entire IAP project provides opening of the new energy corridor for the region of CEE/SEE and Western Balkans within the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC), for the purpose of establishing a new natural gas supply route from the Middle East, Caspian region and East Mediterranean. The IAP will have a bidirectional gas flow and it will be fully compatible with the LNG terminal on the island of Krk. 
The main IAP advantages:
• Gasification of Albania, Montenegro, southern part of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina
• Security of supply and a diversification of the supply for the entire region 
• Market integration
The project is planned to be completed in 2025
