Azerbaijan resumes gasoline export to Georgia

07 February 2007 [09:25] - TODAY.AZ
Azerbaijan has resumed exporting gasoline to Georgia.

Saknavtobtans Director General Vakhtang Kiknadze told APA bureau that Georgia received the first installment of 200 tons of gasoline three days ago. Additional 3,500 tons of fuel will be delivered soon.

Before suspension, Azerbaijan had exported 10 to 15 tons of gasoline to Georgia a day.

The State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) stopped gasoline exports in late 2006 so as to deliver more straight-run fuel oil to the power stations because amid a row with Gazprom, Azerbaijan had reoriented its power plants to fuel oil which used to run on natural gas.

Kiknadze said 4,300 tons of A92 gasoline were imported from Turkmenistan as of late January.
