Gazprom invests 30 billion soms in modernization of gas industry in Kyrgyzstan

Gazprom Kyrgyzstan has invested 30 billion soms in the restoration and modernization of the country’s gas industry for eight years. Deputy General Director of the company for Economy and Finance, Arzymat Aldayarov, announced at a press conference organized by 24.kg news agency.

He recalled that in the past eight years, Gazprom has been supplying and selling gas in Kyrgyzstan. The work is carried out on the basis of an intergovernmental agreement. To date, Gazprom Kyrgyzstan has complied with all the conditions of this document. This includes the modernization and restoration of the country’s gas industry. 112 kilometers of Bukhara — Tashkent — Bishkek — Almaty main gas pipeline were built. Four gas distribution stations — Sokuluk, Bishkek-2, Tokmok, Kant, and 67 kilometers of Bishkek — Kant — Tokmok gas pipeline have been completely reconstructed.

The construction of over 1,100 kilometers of gas distribution networks in Bishkek and Chui region has been completed.

Over 100 kilometers of unreliable gas pipelines, 40 kilometers of Bukhara — Tashkent — Bishkek — Almaty main gas pipeline and Sokuluk — 5A compressor station were overhauled.

«If in 2014 the level of gas distribution network development in Kyrgyzstan was 22 percent, then by the end of 2022 it was 38 percent. To date, we have supplied 45,000 households with gas. Including in Bishkek, 27 housing estates were supplied with gas, covering more than 27,000 households. We comply in full with all clauses of the agreement. At the same time, there are points from the Kyrgyz side that are not being implemented to date. This, among other things, limits our activities,» Arzymat Aldayarov said.
