Gas supplies for Tskhinval stopped

2009-03-10 12:47

Tskhinval is totally cut off gas supplies, ITAR TASS informs alluding to Nugzar Tabuyev, the chief engineer of Energetika [South Ossetian company].


"According to Itera-Georgia representatives, repair works are being conducted on the Agara-Tskhinval gas pipeline" Tabuyev said, "In this connection gas supplies of Tskhinval are cut off up to 5 p.m. "

The Ossetian side has insisted on repair works on the Georgian part of the pipeline since early February.

Let us remind that Russian gas supplies to South Ossetia via the territory of Georgia were resumed on January 25th 2009, after about six months of cutting off. In a few days after resumption pressure in the pipe started dropping and this morning was only 0.5 atmospheres.

For all that time Itera-Georgia representatives, responsible for Russian gas transit to South Ossetia, has been saying that they are "working on this issue and damages will be repaired".
