Volume of pumping through Stavropol gas hub to exceed the volume of current transit through the Ukraine 1.6 times by 2018

The Stavropol gas hub will transport 1.6 times more gas by 2018 than the current volume of the Russian gas transit through the Ukraine, Gazprom reports.

During the meeting with Acting Governor of the Stavropol Territory, Vladimir Vladimirov, Gazprom’s head, Alexei Miller noted the growing role of the Stavropol hub in the gas transportation system, including the export destinations, particularly to Armenia and Turkey. The volume of the gas transportation through the system Gazprom Transgaz Stavropol, which covers 10 regions, will increase to 135 billion cubic meters per year by 2018.

"The connection of the gas transportation system Southern Corridor with capacity of 63 billion cubic meters with the existing system Gazprom Transgaz Stavropol, which supplies gas to 12 regions of Russia and for export to Armenia and Turkey, takes place just in the Stavropol Territory. Taking into account the launch of Southern Corridor, the transportation of gas through the Stavropol system will increase to 135 billion cubic meters per year," – the Gazprom’s head said.

By 2018, the South Stream project, for which Southern Corridor is constructed in the Russian territory, should reach its estimated capacity of 63 billion cubic meters per year.
