Gas supply project to boost tourism in Georgia

Gas supply project to boost tourism in Georgia

“Project for Natural Gas Supply to Highlander Adjara is a very important step of state magnitude, as it will enable us not only to avoid the reduction of population in mountainous Adjara, but on the contrary - it will let us increase it further and make this place more interesting for the development of tourism”, Mamuka Bakhtadze, Prime Minister of Georgia, said in Khichauri village upon the completion of Phase One of Natural Gas Supply Project to Highlander Adjara, Caspian Energy News (www.caspianenergy.net) reports with reference to the press office of the Prime Minister of Georgia.

“By engineering point of view, the project has turned out to be rather complex and difficult. Phase Two has been budgeted at 30 MLN GEL and as I promised, our pipelines will reach Goderdzi Gorge by 2020 to supply natural gas to 15 000 households in addition to the current number of subscribers”, the Prime Minister of Georgia said.

It stands to mention that Phase One of Natural Gas Supply to Highlander Adjara covers villages from Salibauri through Khichaura. Pipes have been laid for 65 kilometers of the central pipeline. Project envisages supply of natural gas to 11 000 subscribers of Khelvachauri, Keda and Shuakhevi.

Construction of the natural gas pipeline is budgeted at 25 768 251 GEL. Project implementation started on October 17, 2017. Phase Two of the Natural Gas Supply Project to Adjarian Highlands is being designed currently and envisages the construction of a main pipeline along Shuakhevi-Goderdzi Gordge with an estimated length of 54 kilometers.
