European Commission's Vice-President for Energy Union Maroš Šefčovič attended the first founding meeting of the Advisory Council on the Southern Gas Corridor in Baku on 11 February 2015, a project to bring gas from Azerbaijan to Europe by 2019-2020.

Ministers from transit countries, including Georgia, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Albania and Bulgaria also participated in the meeting hosted by the President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliev, as well as representatives from the planned TANAP pipeline via Turkey, and the TAP (Trans-Adriatic) pipeline via Greece and Albania.

On 17 March 2015, Turkey and Azerbaijan formally began the construction of the TANAP gas pipeline, which was set to pump gas in the future from the vast Azerbaijani Shah Deniz 2 field to Turkish and EU consumers. The TANAP project is part of the South Gas Corridor.
