Gas consumption ups in Baku
Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 3 / Trend E.Ismayilov /
At present, the average gas feed of Bakgaz (distribution and sale of gas to Baku) under the Azerigas Production Unity (PU), to the Baku gas feed system is 5.2 million cubic meters compared to 3.9 million cubic meters in the early October, 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 gas consumption in Baku significantly increased and now averages about 5.2 million cubic meters of gas per day due to cool weather conditions, the source said.
The PU transferred more than 1.8 billion cubic meters of domestic gas to the gas feed system of Baku in the January-September, the source said.
The PU transferred about 108 million cubic meters of natural gas to the gas feed system of the capital in September, compared to more than 104 million cubic meters in August. In May, about 141 million cubic meters was handed over the system. 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 handed over the system.
The PU transferred about 2.45 billion cubic meters of gas to the gas feed system of Baku in 2008.
PU refused from season gas supply (summer and winter seasons) in Baku's gas system in 2008. Volume of supplied gas is determined by consumers' demand. Introduction of season regime was connected with lack of gas meters among most part of population. As a result population used gas irrationally. Presently, 100 percent of users of Baku's system were provided with gas meters, a source said. Earlier, daily gas supply was 3-4 million cubic meters in summer but 10-13 million cubic meters in winter.
