Moldovan Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilita will pay a visit to
Azerbaijan to discuss gas supplies, Azernews reports, citing
foreign media sources.
“The prime minister will visit Baku to attend the meeting of the
Moldova-Azerbaijan intergovernmental commission on trade and
economic cooperation, which will take place on October 10-12. Among
the issues to be discussed is the possibility of importing natural
gas from Azerbaijan,” the Moldovan government's press service
Earlier, Moldovan Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Spinu said that
Moldova is considering the possibility of signing a long-term gas
supply contract with Azerbaijan. He noted that Moldova consumes
about 3 billion cubic meters of gas a year, and would like to sign
a contract to receive gas in the range of 1 to 3 billion cubic
meters per year.
With the completion of the TAP (Trans-Adriatic Pipeline)
construction on December 31, 2020, Azerbaijan began commercial gas
supplies to Europe via the Southern Gas Corridor.
Last year, TAP transported 8.1 billion cubic meters of gas to
Europe. By late 2022, Azerbaijan plans to increase gas supplies to
Europe to 9.1 billion cubic meters, and in 2023, the volume of gas
supplies is expected to reach 11 billion cubic meters.
