GOGC Started Construction Works on the Rustavi-Sagarejo 25 Km Section of the Kakheti Main Gas Pipeline

19 February, 2014
JSC Georgian Oil and Gas Corporation has started construction works on the Rustavi-Sagarejo 25 km section of the Kakheti main gas pipeline. A tender winning company - Komfortmsheni XXI is carrying out rehabilitation works.

Construction works are expected to be completed in September 2014.

The construction of DN 300 Rustavi-Sagarejo pipeline section will ensure secure supply of natural gas to the Kakheti region via so called ‘ring type’ system.

In the Soviet Union, Kakheti region was supplied with natural gas through the Rustavi-Telavi gas pipeline. In the 90s of the last Century, gas delivery to Kakheti Region was stopped and pipes were plundered. Rustavi-Sagraejo 25 km section of the Rustavi-Telavi pipeline was completely stolen at that time. Currently Kakheti region receives its gas supply only from the Zhinvali branch. Therefore it is necessary to upgrade Kakheti gas supply system and increase the pipeline performance as well as its reliability.
