It crosses the following municipalities: Melendugno, Vernole, Castrì di Lecce, Lizzanello, Lecce, Surbo, Torchiarolo, San Pietro Vernotico and Brindisi.
Natural Gas Pipeline – Tap Interconnecting is functional to the national network supplying natural gas through Trans Adriatic Pipeline, a part of the Southern Gas Corridor which transports in Europe the natural gas from Azerbaijan to Italy.
Several plants such as Pipeline Interception Points and SRG Terminal in Melendugno have been realized as well.
