(ArmInfo) - For four days already Armenia has been receiving Russian gas in limited amount because of breakage of gas pipeline in the terriory of Georgia, reports Trend.

Spokesperson of ArmRosgazprom Shushan Sardayan says that the repairs are still underway even though Dec 20 Georgia promised to finish the work by the evening.

Presently Armenia is receiving 110,000 c m an hour via a reserve pipeline. The rest is supplied from the Abovyan Underground Gas Storage. No restrictions are being applied yet as the company is expecting the situation to change. Should it apply any restrictions they will first of all concern manufacturing enterprises.
