Construction of an underground gas storage facility in Georgia is planned to begin in 2016, said the country’s energy ministry, Sputnik international news agency reported.
The gas storage facility will be built on the territory of Samgori South Dome oil field.
The analysis results show that the territory where the field is located is the optimal place for construction of the underground gas storage facility.
The GEOSTOCK SAS French company, which won the international tender, will finalize the feasibility study preparation for the construction of the facility in early 2016.
