Natural gas supplies to southern Kyrgyzstan were resumed today, Gazprom Kyrgyzstan told Tazabek on December 30.
The supplies were stopped by Uzbekistan on April 14, 2014. The south of Kyrgyzstan stayed without natural gas during 8.5 months.
Gazprom Kyrgyzstan signed a contract with Gazprom Schweiz AG for the supply of gas in 2015. The gas supplies are expected to be resumed on December 30, 2014 in accordance with the terms of the contract. The volume of the natural gas supplied will reach 100 million cubic meters.
Gas tariffs for the southern regions of the country equal the tariffs in the north. In January 2015, new tariffs will be approved based on the official exchange rate of the U.S. dollar, set by the National Bank on the 1st day of each month.
As of December 2014, rates for natural gas in the north of the country amounted to 13.54 som ($0.23) per 1 cubic meter for the population, and to 16.30 som ($0.28) per 1 cubic meter for industrial enterprises, commercial structures and budgetary organizations.
