Official: Gas Pipe Blast not to Hinder Supplies in Georgia
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 24 Nov.'06 / 14:08

An explosion damaged the North Caucasus-Trans Caucasus gas pipeline in Russia’s North Ossetia on November 24, Russian RIA Novosti news agency reported.

A gas leak was cited as the cause of the explosion.

Georgian Deputy Energy Minister Alexander Khetaguri said at a news conference that the explosion will not affect Georgia, “as Georgia was not receiving gas from this pipeline.”

“Georgia faces no danger in gas supplies. The pipeline that was damaged is not used for importing Russian gas - it is an internal Russian pipeline,” Khetaguri said.
 
Two simultaneous explosions - one on the North Caucasus-Trans Caucasus gas pipeline and another on the reserve Mozdok-Tbilisi pipeline - cut Russian gas deliveries to Georgia in January 2006, triggering an energy crisis in the country.
