Mozdok-Tbilisi gas pipeline restored

Russian specialists told me that Russian gas will be supplied to Georgia along the restored gas pipeline either this evening or tomorrow (Sunday) morning,” Mr Maglaperidze said, while visiting the site of the gas pipeline rupture in North Ossetia.

Both the main and backup gas pipelines were severed by explosions in North Ossetia near the Russian-Georgian border on 22 January. Seven million cubic meters of gas were not supplied to Georgia, and two thirds of Georgians were left without gas supply for nearly a week. One of the power units of the Tbilisi hydropower plant was also suspended, which triggered blackouts in the country’s capital, Tbilisi.
