SOCAR announces gas export volumes to Georgia
Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec.24
By Maksim Tsurkov - Trend:
SOCAR (State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic) exported 1.25 billion cubic meters of gas to Georgia in January-November 2015, a source in the company told Trend Dec.24.
"Since the beginning of 2015, Georgia daily received in average 3.74 million cubic meters of gas," said the source. "Overall, export indexes are higher than in January-November last year, when 1.1 billion cubic meters of gas were exported," said the source.
In 2016, SOCAR doesn't plan to change the volume of gas supplies to Georgia.
"These rates will remain at the same level as in the current year, as the volumes have been agreed upon and slightly vary depending on the needs of Georgia," said the source.
SOCAR exported 2.15 billion cubic meters of gas to Georgia in 2014, which is by 248.1 million cubic meters (10.5 percent) more than in 2013.
SOCAR delivers its own gas to Georgia via a pipeline that runs through Azerbaijan's Gazakh district. The gas pumping capacity via this pipeline nears 3 billion cubic meters per year.
