North-South Main Gas Pipeline Rehabilitation Project

The rehabilitation of the North-South Main Gas Pipeline is part of the Energy Infrastructure Rehabilitation Project funded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation.

The rehabilitation of the main gas pipeline was implemented in three phases. As a result, 22 damaged sectors of the pipeline were rehabilitated and constructed.

The main gas pipeline rehabilitation project increased Georgia’s transit potential.

The implementation of the project started in 2006 and completed in 2010. GOGC served as the operator of the project. Rehabilitation and construction works were executed by Georgian and foreign companies selected through international tenders. BP and EBRD (The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development) funded the study of the pipeline conditions.

The North-South Main Gas Pipeline was constructed in the 60’s and 80’s of the 20th Century and has not been rehabilitated since then. The pipeline stretches from the Georgian-Russian boarder to Georgian-Armenian boarder (221 km) and supplies Georgia and Armenia with natural gas.
