Georgia, Tbilisi/ Trend , corr. N. Kirtskhalia/ Georgia is expected to resume receiving gas produced from an Azerbaijani gas condensate field, "Shah-Daniz" via SCP (South Caucasian gas Pipeline of Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum) starting from March 17, 2007, a source in the Georgian Oil and Gas Corporation has told Trend Correspondent to Tbilisi.
Supplying Georgia with gas was interrupted in the third decade of January, 2007 due to some technical difficulties and irregularities occurred on the first well of the field. The Georgian quota in the SCP Project in 2007 reaches 250 mln. cubic meters of gas (at the price of $62 per 1.000 cubic meters). Georgia expects to receive 800 mln. cubic meters from Turkey's quota in this year as well, however, the price has not been determined.
According to the agreement, up to April 1, 2007, Georgia will receive Azerbaijani gas via "old" pipe - "Gardabani-Garadagh" on 1.3 mln. cubic meters per day on average, and at the price of $120 per 1.000 cubic meters.
