Gazprom to raise 60 per cent gasification of Kyrgyzstan

“Gazprom early fulfills the obligations assumed on entry into the Kyrgyz market. The General Gas Supply Scheme is an extensive project that will strongly boost the reliability of gas supply to consumers. Thereby the domestic gasification will grow from 22 to 60 per cent by 2030. Between 2015 and 2017 the investment program of our subsidiary company Gazprom Kyrgyzstan will account for RUB 35 billion which 1.7 times exceeds our five-year obligations assumed in regard with acquisition of this asset.”

New Russia – Turkey gas pipeline route approved at meeting in Ankara

“The joint construction of the gas transportation facilities within such an important project would create the strategic infrastructure partnership between Gazprom and Botas. The talks were friendly and constructive. Both parties are keen to hit the target. Our priorities – to study the route’s options in Turkey, to define the location of the landfall facilities, gas delivery points for Turkish consumers and border crossings between Turkey and Greece. We agreed to plan our work in such a way that would allow us to sign an Intergovernmental Agreement on the gas pipeline in the second quarter this year, therefore the first gas would come to Turkey in December 2016. In this respect, the first string’s throughput capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters will be exclusively intended for Turkish consumers. Considering the state of readiness of the Russkaya compressor station and the pipeline’s offshore section, this deadline is absolutely real.”
