According to the source, after the victory in the country’s Nagorno-Karabakh war, as part of the work to restore the liberated territories and create the appropriate infrastructure, on behalf of the SOCAR leadership, work has been launched on a preliminary feasibility study of natural gas supplies to the residential areas.
