Accord secures natural gas supplies to southern Kyrgyzstan

Natural gas supplies to the south of Kyrgyzstan were renewed Dec. 30 after an eight-month stoppage, due to an accord achieved between Gazprom and Uzbekneftegaz for 2015, stipulating the annual supply of up to 100 million cubic meters of natural gas to the southern regions of the country.

On April 10, Gazprom and Kyrgyzgaz signed the sales and purchase agreement for a 100% stake of KyrgyzgazProm (renamed Gazprom Kyrgyzstan), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyrgyzgaz. Gazprom Kyrgyzstan is the sole importer of natural gas to Kyrgyzstan and the owner of the domestic gas transmission and distribution systems.

Uzbekneftegaz is a vertically integrated three-level holding dealing with gas exploration, production, transmission, and marketing.
