Gazprom to Upgrade Gas Supplies to Kyrgyzstan
The development of gas transmission and distribution infrastructure of Kyrgyzstan was discussed during a meeting held at the Gazprom headquarters hosted today between Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Company's Management Committee and Djoomart Otorbaev, Prime Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic.
It was pointed out that the relevant facilities in the Republic were well rundown. In this regard, Gazprom is working out the General Gas Supply and Gasification Scheme of Kyrgyzstan until 2030. The document envisages large-scale reconstruction and upgrade of gas transmission, underground gas storage and distribution facilities.
The meeting participants placed a special emphasis on Gazprom's contribution to establishing the autonomous gasification of Kyrgyzstan's southern regions as well as preparing the pre-investment research for the North – South gas trunkline.
It was noted that the integration of Gazprom Kyrgyzstan into Gazprom Group would increase the efficiency of the company's business activities as well as enhance the social security of its employees.
