AKIPRESS.COM - Kazakhstan’s KazTransGas (KTG) has resumed transit of Turkmen gas to Russia via the Central Asia-Center gas pipeline system, the KTG said in a release on May 3.
The company recalled that the transit of Turkmen gas through the gas transmission system of Kazakhstan was terminated in 2016. “Thanks to modern technologies and modernization of the Central Asia-Center gas pipeline, the mode of transporting Turkmen gas was formed (launched) in a few days,” the release reads.
From April 2019, Turkmenistan resumed natural gas exports to Russia that had been suspended for more than three years. Gazprom suspended buying Turkmen gas in 2016. It was reported in March 2019 that Gazprom intends to resume purchases of gas from Turkmenistan.
Russia and Turkmenistan established gas cooperation by signing of the agreement in 2003.
