Earlier, RA Energy Minister Armen Movsisyan said that the flow efficiency of Iran- Armenia gas pipeline will be brought to 2.5 bln cub m per year by November, 2008, that will become possible as a result of increase of the flow efficiency of the gas pipeline at Kajaran-Yerevan section. A. Movsisyan also said that the major part of the work at this section has been already done. He added that the Iranian gas supplies to Armenia may start earlier than the target date, i.e. till early, 2009.
