Georgian Energy Minister Meets Gazprom CEO In Brussels


(Civil.Ge) — Georgian Energy Minister and Deputy PM Kakha Kaladze met chief executive of Russian gas monopoly Gazprom Alexei Miller in Brussels on September 25.

“The sides discussed issues of cooperation in the gas sector. Russian natural gas supplies to Georgia, as well as transit [of gas] to third countries were discussed,” Gazprom said in a brief press release late on Friday afternoon.

Currently Armenia is the only country where Georgia transits Russian gas. As a transit fee Georgia receives 10% of total amount of gas transited by Russia to Armenia through 221 km North-South gas pipeline.

The Georgian Energy Ministry said in a brief press release late on Friday evening: “Preparatory works related to 2015-2016 winter season, as well as transit of gas to Armenia were discussed.”
