Azerbaijan to transport 3 billion cubic meters of gas to Russia

President of the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) Rovnag Abdullayev said that Azerbaijani gas exports to Russia will rise from 1.7 billion cubic meters in 2012 to 3 billion in 2013 due to reconstruction of the Azerbaijani-Russian pipeline, Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports.

Gazprom and SOCAR signed a contract in October 2009. An additional deal was signed to increase gas supplies for Sochi on January 24, 2012, due to reduction of gas exports from Turkmenistan.
