Gas consumption in Azerbaijan's capital remains at fixed level
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept.5. / Trend E.Ismayilov /
At present, the average gas supply of Bakgaz (distribution and sale of gas to Baku), under the Azerigas Production Unity (PU), to the Baku gas supply system remains at 3.4 million cubic meters, a source in the company said. Earlier, Azerigas JSC was attached to the structure of SOCAR (Sate Oil Company of the Azerbaijan) as PU.
The average gas consumption in Baku remains at 3.4 million cubic meters per day due to the favorable weather conditions. Oscillations were not observed in the gas supply, the same source added.
Reactions even to the most minor fluctuations in weather conditions affect the gas consumption in the capital.
The PU transferred more than 1.6 billion cubic meters of domestic gas to the gas feed system of Baku in the January-July, the source said earlier.
The PU transferred about 109 million cubic meters of natural gas to the gas feed system of the capital in July, compared to more than 114 million cubic meters in June. In May, about 141 million cubic meters was pumped into the system.
The PU transferred about 2.45 billion cubic meters of gas to the gas feed system of Baku in 2008.
In 2008, the PU completely refused to transfer to seasonal regime of gas feed (winter and summer) to the gas system of the city. Now the amount of gas depends on the demand of consumers. Earlier, in summer season daily gas supply was 3-4 million cubic meters, whilst in winter it reached 10-13 million cubic meters.
