The admissible gas supply from Turkey share in Shahdaniz for Georgia is 0,8 bln. cubic meters, and 1,3 bln cubic meters, for Azerbaijan, Trend Correspondent to Tbilisi reports.

Nikolas Gilauri, Georgian Energy Minister told journalists today that this is not a concrete decision, but just a possible alternative.

Natig Aliyev, Azerbaijan Energy Minister considers this proportion rather successful. That will allow the both countries to pass the winter normally. Negotiations on the details are expected to be launched tomorrow.

According to Mr. Gilauri, the talks will begin at the level of companies.

It is too early to speak about the total volume of gas, since the Georgian share in the project, as well as other alternatives will be added to the gas received from the Turkish share, said the Georgian Energy Minister.
