The pipeline would have provided natural gas from the proposed Eagle FLNG Terminal off the coast of Albania to Italy's Apulia region, connecting to the Italian gas network. It would run 110 kilometers underwater and 18 kilometers to connect with Italy's gas system. The diameter is 28” - 32” offshore; 36” - 42” Italy onshore, and a capacity of 10 billion cubic meters per year. It was submitted for inclusion of the Projects of Common Interest (PCI) list, which would have allowed for public funding through the European Union, but it was not included in the fourth PCI list.
