Pipeline Bridge over the River Natanebi
Reconstruction of the pipeline bridge over the River Natanebi, which is part of the Kutaisi-Sukhumi Main Gas Pipeline has completed. The segment to be reconstructed was located on the 46km of the Kobulti branch of the Main Gas Pipeline.
Heavy rainfall and flooding affected the Natanebi riverbed and shifted it to the right side. In August 2013, it severed the pipeline section located under the water and removed it from its pier columns. The pier columns of the current pipeline bridge were significantly damaged too. Due to these conditions, the reconstruction of the pipeline bridge proved to be necessary.
On request of GOGC reconstruction works were being carried out by Ltd Geolodi. The works completed in summer 2014.
Within the frames of the East-West Main Gas Pipeline Rehabilitation Project, construction work on the 47km Kutaisi-Abasha section of the main gas pipeline has completed. The work is being implemented by a joint enterprise of Sakmilmsheni and PVI ZIT Naftogazbudizolyatsia.
Construction work started in late October 2012 and has been completed in November 2013. The project was supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
The East-West main gas pipeline construction project is aimed at full rehabilitation of the selected section of the pipeline in order to secure safe and reliable supply of natural gas to Poti Free Industrial Zone, industrial-agricultural and recreational zones as well as to the population of West Georgia.
The construction of DN700 Abasha-Senaki 29km section of the main gas pipeline was implemented within the East- West Main gas Pipeline rehabilitation program.

South Georgia Main Gas Pipeline
Different sections of a 195km long gas pipeline were rehabilitated and 5,5km long section was constructed as part of the Tsiteli-Khidi-Tsalka-Alastani project, aimed to supply Samtskhe Javakheti with natural gas.
The construction of the Tsiteli-Khidi-Tsalka-Alastani section of the main gas pipeline was stopped in the 90th of the last Century, which made the gasification of the region impossible. In 2008, after the implementation of the Tsiteli-Khidi-Tsalka-Alastani project, natural gas delivery was resumed to the Tsalka region; as a result Akhalkalaki, Aspindza, Akhaltsikhe and Ninotsminda regions received their first gas.
By the order of GOGC, GGTC and its sub-contractor - New Energy carried out construction and rehabilitation works.
Several sections of the Pipeline built by GGTC were checked and reinstated. A 24km long Kotelia-Aspindza branch of the pipeline was connected to the main gas pipeline system. In addition, the Aspindza-Akhaltsikhe 24km branch of the main gas pipeline was designed and constructed.
The abovementioned projects enabled the delivery of cheap and ecologically clean energy resources to the Samtskhe–Javakheti region.
