On what conditions is Georgia going to increase the volume of Russian gas imports?

51
Georgian Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Kakha Kaladze (by the way, a former football player) said that Georgia intends to increase imports of Russian gas. At the same time, Georgia is not going to pay for the planned growth in deliveries, but instead is going to “allow” Russia to increase the volume of transit supplies (through Georgia) to Armenia.


On what conditions is Georgia going to increase the volume of Russian gas imports?


RIA News cites a fragment of the Georgian Minister’s statement:
Today we have 12% (Georgia under the contract makes a "selection" of 12% of the volume of gas supplied by Russia to Armenia - approx. "VO") and if an agreement is reached and we can get additional volumes when it is necessary In our country, the indicator may increase to about 20%. Of course, this is temporary. This is a one-year agreement. The term of the previous agreement with Russia expired on December 31. New we have not yet signed.


As you can see, Georgia is trying to approach the issue pragmatically: they don’t want to pay for gas, and especially there is nothing, and therefore the idea of ​​increasing the transit volume of Russian gas to Yerevan with a simultaneous increase in the “transit” percentage for Georgia appears.

Tbilisi notes that the country needs an increase in gas supplies. The increase could occur at the expense of gas purchases from Azerbaijan, but, firstly, in this case Georgia needs to pay real money, and, secondly, according to the Minister of Energy, the pipeline from Azerbaijan does not allow increasing supply volumes.

      ------------------------
      Judging by the rotation of personnel in Ukraine, Georgians and Ukrainians are one and the same nationality. By the way, Georgians, Ukrainians, Germans and French are artificial names for no less artificial supranational entities in the form of Georgia, Ukraine, Germany and France.

          nobody has taken anything from us yet. Georgians need more gas, we need to increase transit through them. The Georgians naturally came out with the best possible offer for themselves, but nobody canceled the bargain, they will agree on the conditions.

      Yes it is necessary, and even very much. And Gazprom wants to buy a gas pipeline that goes to Armenia.
      By the way, Azerbaijan buys gas from Gazprom, and some resells to Georgia.
      Not everything is so clear on these negotiations.
      And Kakhi Kaladze, a former football player or endocrinologist, does not matter.
      There is an ordinary cold-blooded bargaining.

      If Armenia really needs an increase in gas volumes, and a gas company with Georgia pays for transit by barter (gas), and not in dollars, then why not !?

    It’s right in Ukrainian - there are boxers and former Shtatovs with Georgians who are crying in the homeland.
    going "Allow" of Russia

    Almost touched to tears - Georgians can us let... The most interesting thing is that Russia is trying to dictate the conditions of the country that lost in the war in the 20-21 century. Germany sets conditions for Minsk-2, Georgia for gas. Some kind of sur.

    Well, why not, although someone, at least some miserable rebuff, over the past 15 years, Russia has given in this matter? Gazprom brilliant managers ALWAYS make concessions; there has never been a single time before some kind of pimple like Georgia or Estonia has twisted its great and terrible hands. Now the Gazprom ones will puff up, turn around - you are not here, you who, and we who - and that’s all, will go to all the conditions of Georgia. Well, of course, they will increase tariffs for the domestic population, of course, to compensate for something as it should.

    We are good, we will tolerate! And it’s nothing that we have a third (if not more) of the country without gas, nothing if the veteran grandfather throws out a pension for coal and firewood! Nothing! But we will show that we generously help our "brothers" !!!! It's nothing that these "brothers" will continue to demand, and threaten, set their own conditions! But we are a great state, only it’s a pity that the grandfather is a veteran hi

      It is not that simple. The grandfather of the veteran will be asked so much for the supply of gas that he wants to stay with the wood. In many settlements there is no gas because the population is not able to pay for this work. But for no reason no one wants to do.

    In general, it is strange, because of which her passions were heated.
    These negotiations are held every year, and every year a new contract is concluded for a period of exactly 1 year. As is usually the case in negotiations, each side sets its own terms, defends its interests, holds meetings, agrees, and signs an agreement. What's so special?
    Instead of giving a detailed analysis of Georgian, Azerbaijani and Gazprom sources, the one who was typing the article pulled out a piece and made a cheap propaganda proclamation.
