Minister of Energy Alexander Khetaguri of Georgia

Khetaguri said that the company, Telasi, is interested in rebuilding the stations in Racha.
Khetaguri said that they receive gas from Azerbaijan and not from Russia.
Today the Minister of Energy of Georgia Alexander Khetaguri is going to make an announcement in this regard.
Alexander Khetaguri said information that Azerbaijan-Georgian talks on gas deal remained ineffective is baseless.
Georgian Deputy Energy Minister Alexander Khetaguri said at a news conference that the explosion will not affect Georgia, “as Georgia was not receiving gas from this pipeline.
Georgian Energy Minister Alexander Khetaguri said that, with today’s price for crude oil, Tbilisi is looking not only at the Baku-Tbilisi, Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum, and Baku-Supsa pipelines, but also new projects to transit much-need hydrocarbons to western markets.
Around 1 bcm of Azeri gas will be sent to neighboring Georgia every year at $167 for every thousand cubic meters (tcm), Khetaguri said in an interview, around $100 less than Gazprom charges.
Yet, the figures, voiced by the Georgian Minister, caused bewilderment of SOCAR vice president Khoshbakht Yusifzade, who could not help asking with surprise during the report where Khetaguri had taken these figures from.
Alexander Khetaguri said the aging pipeline suffered a rupture.
