The national operator KazTransGas JSC resumed the transit of Turkmen commercial gas through the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan to the Russian Federation via the “Central Asia – Center” main gas pipeline.
KazTransGas was able to resume transit through its gas pipeline system in record time. Thanks to modern technologies and modernization of the main gas pipeline “Central Asia – Center”, the mode of transportation of Turkmen gas was formed (launched) in just a few days.
The volume of transportation of Turkmen gas to the Russian Federation via the “Central Asia – Center” main gas pipeline is 15 million cubic meters per day. Since the beginning of the resumption of transit through the territory of Kazakhstan, more than 220 million cubic meters of gas have been transported already.
It should be reminded that the transit of Turkmen gas through the gas transportation system of Kazakhstan was stopped in 2016.
At the beginning of 2019, Turkmenistan and the Russian Federation reached an agreement on the resumption of gas supplies within the framework of the current intergovernmental Agreement on cooperation in the gas sector until 2028. This made it possible to restore mutually beneficial cooperation in the gas sphere to three States at once.
In recent years, Kazakhstan’s gas industry has undergone a large-scale modernization and, according to experts, the company “KazTransGas” has become the most important and technologically most powerful operator of gas flows in Central Asia and Middle East.
