Russian Gas Supply To Armenia Restored

15.12.2009 12:44

Russian gas supplies to Armenia were restored on Monday after being
severed for a day when bombs were found under a pipeline in the
volatile southern region of Ingushetia.

Armenia gets around 2 billion cubic metres of gas annually from
Russia, but customers were not affected, said Shushan Sardaryan,
a spokeswoman for ArmRosGazprom.

"The supply of gas to Armenia has now restarted," Shushan Sardaryan
told "Radiolur."

Russian police defused two bombs and searched the area for other
explosive devices, after the Mozdok-Tbilisi pipeline was shut down
on Sunday.

Officials then worked to restore the flow of gas in the pipeline which
also serves customers in Russia’s North Ossetia and Ingushetia regions.
