Russian Gas Transit To Armenia is Restored

08 October 2009 , 08:07RIAN1691

Natural gas transit was halted last Thursday and resumed on Tuesday evening, the spokesman said.

Georgia earlier announced that gas transit to Russia would be suspended on October 1–5 due to repairs and maintenance work on the North Caucasus-South Caucasus trunk pipeline to prepare for the winter season.

During the repairs, Armenia used natural gas from an underground storage facility, the spokesman said.

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%.
