Secretary at the Ministry of Energy Koti Bele said that Albanian Government wants to renegotiate the terms of its agreement with TAP AG, the operator of future Trans-Adriatic gas pipeline, since Greece signed a more favorable agreement.

Bele said that Albania wants similar agreement which would include some favorable elements for the benefit of local community, for the environment protection and the involvement of Albanian local companies in the project. Therefore, the Government has hired Roland Berger consulting company which will compare TAP’s agreements with Albania and Greece and point out where Greece profited more.
