Georgia, Tbilisi / corr. Trend N.Kirskhalia / The Oil and Gas Corporation of Georgia states that Georgia does not sustain a deficit due to the decrease of gas supply from Azerbaijan. Trend special correspondent reports quoting the Oil and Gas Corporation of Georgia. Azerigaz CSC decreased the gas supplied to Georgia in the volume of 1.3 mln cu.m. from 10 January.

At present Georgia receives 1 mln cu.m of gas via the South Caucasus Pipeline per day. This gas is produced from the Shah Deniz field.
