Kazakhstan decreases gas supplies to northern Kyrgyzstan to 30 thousand cubic meters per hour
KazTransGas has limited the supply of natural gas to northern Kyrgyzstan to 30 thousand cubic meters per hour. As a correspondent of the IA REGNUM was reported by the KyrgyzGas’ press centre today, on December 14, the reason for the decrease of the supplies was the limitation of the Uzbek gas deliveries, as well as the gas shortage at southern Kazakhstan.
It is noted that on the whole 15 528 789 cubic meters of natural gas was received in December of the current year. The factual consumption makes up 44.1 thousand cubic meters per hour in northern Kyrgyzstan.
As the IA REGNUM reported earlier, Kazakhstan already limited the gas supplies to Kyrgyzstan in November. As the GyrgyzGas’ General Director Turgunbek Kulmurzayev reported on November 30, northern Kyrgyzstan exceeded the gas consumption, which was provided for by the contract with KazTransGas and because of that Kazakhstan suspended the supplies. “Now the gas supply is normalized. From November 27, it grew to 41 thousand cubic meters per day from 34 thousand cubic meters. The pipeline upstream pressure makes up 16 atmospheres,"- said Turgunbek Kulmurzayev.
At the same time, the KyrgyzGas’ Head reported that gas supply outages are no longer expected in Kyrgyzstan before the end of the current year.
