AKIPRESS.COM - Gazprom is going to scale up gas deliveries to Central Asian nations by November 1, 2025 and make fifteen-year contracts with Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan by mid-2024, CEO Alexey Miller said, Tass reports.
Gazprom is currently providing for gas supplies to Uzbekistan twice above daily contract commitments of the company, Miller noted.
"We also started implementing the second stage of increasing gas transport capacities in the Middle Asia - Center corridor with a very tight deadline. The task is set again for an extremely short period - we are to start supplying much higher volumes by November 1, 2025. Mid-term fifteen-year contracts we negotiated with our partners in Kyrgyzstan, in Kazakhstan, and in Uzbekistan will be made in the middle of the next year at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Stable and reliable gas supplies under these contracts to Central Asian Republics will begin on November 1, 2025," the chief executive said.
Gazprom transferred the Middle Asia - Center gas transport system to operate in the reverse mode during three-odd months, making it possible to provide Central Asian countries with more reliable gas supplies, he added.
