The Government of Georgia continues work to ensure natural gas supplies to villages throughout the country.

At today’s cabinet meeting the Government of Georgia decided to supply 34 more villages with natural gas, which will affect approximately 11,000 households countrywide.

20 million GEL (about $7 million/€6 million*) in total will be spent to provide natural gas to thousands of families.

Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili said at the meeting that over 160,000 gas subscribers have been connected to Georgia’s natural gas grid over the past few years, for which 241 million GEL (about $90 million/€83 million*) was allocated for this purpose.

Natural gas is now available to one million people in Georgia thanks to the Government’s efforts to ensure reliable access to natural gas.
