Azerbaijan maximally increased daily gas supply to Georgia from Shah Deniz field, Mahir Mammadov, the head of SOCAR Energy Georgia, told.

The increase in supply covers winter season, according to him.

“Before, seasonal deliveries varied from 1.5 million to 2.8 million cubic meters of gas per day, but now the upper limit increased up to 3.2 million cubic meters of gas per day,” said Mammadov. “Thus, the supply ratio will be 70 to 30 percent in winter and summer, compared to 60 to 40 percent supplied before.”

The annual gas consumption is 2.4 billion cubic meters in Georgia, he noted.

“Some 750-800 million cubic meters of gas is being supplied annually to Georgia from Shah Deniz field, 1.4 billion cubic meters – by Azerbaijan’s State Oil Company SOCAR, other 200 million cubic meters – by Russia,” added Mammadov.

“The volume of supply for 2016 is being specified and depends on the consumption level,” explained Mammadov.

Georgia imported 1.51 million tons of oil equivalent from Azerbaijan in 2015 in the amount of $314.3 million.

Azerbaijan is the main gas supplier to Georgia with a share of 74.9 percent of the total volume of gas imports of the country.
