A spokesman for the ArmRosgazprom joint venture said Tuesday that repair work to the pipeline had been completed, and gas supplies to Armenia resumed at about 03:00 p.m. GMT on Monday.
The resumption of gas supplies to Armenia was confirmed by the Georgian oil and gas corporation.
"Supplies were suspended due to technical problems caused by a serious gas leak from a corrosive pipe. Workers kept their promise to repair the damaged section within five days," the spokesman said.
Armenia currently consumes 8.5 million-9 million cubic meters of gas daily.
The Armenian-Russian joint gas venture, ArmRosgazprom, has a monopoly on Russian gas supplies and distribution in Armenia.
Russian energy giant Gazprom controls 75.55% in the joint venture, the Armenian government holds a 20% stake, and Russia's Itera company another 4.44%.
