Tbilisi, March 13 - Neftegaz.RU. The 2 most important strategic segments of the gas market of Georgia - the population and the production of electricity - will be provided by Azerbaijani gas, Georgia's Deputy Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Natia Turnava said.

 

«Azerbaijan remains the main supplier and strategic partner of Georgia, and the share of Azerbaijani gas will increase in the Georgian market in the coming years,» said Tournava.

 

She said after the full implementation of the 2nd phase of the Shah-Deniz field, Georgia as a transit country for Azerbaijani gas will receive its own gas resources. «These resources will be used for gas supply of socially unprotected segments of the population and the power industry,» said Turna

 

Gas supply from Azerbaijan to Georgia may increase by 11 % in 2019, Azerbaijan’s state oil company SOCAR predicts.
