Meghri and Agarak towns of Armenia to be supplied with gas

ArmInfo. Meghri and Agarak towns (Syunik province of Armenia) will be supplied with gas. On March 31, the Armenian Government provided Sanergy company (Iran) with a permit to carry out licensed activities under the intergovernmental agreement signed on 23 Dec 2011. 

 
Armenian Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Levon Yolyan said under the specified agreement Iran will grant $2 mln to Armenia for construction of a gas distribution network in the near-border towns of Meghri and Agarak. "The Iranian company Sanergy, which has been 
granted the relevant license by the Iranian Government, will carry out the construction" the minister said. In the meantime, according to the arrangements with Gazprom, Gazprom Armenia CJSC will control the quality of the construction. 
 
Following the sitting of the Government, the minister told the reporters that the towns will be supplied with Iranian gas, not Russian one. Yolyan did not specify the price. "The Iranian gas price will be made public after the construction is over," he said. When asked whether the price may be unfavorable, the minister replied that it will be for the consumers to decide whether to join the gas supply network or not. 
 
To recall, during Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's visit to Yerevan on 23 Dec 2011, Armenia and Iran signed a memorandum of understanding. On 19 March 2014, the Armenian Government approved a grant program, under which Iran will provide Armenia with 2 mln USD 
to supply the near-border Armenian towns of Meghri and Agarak with gas. For its part, Armenia will provide 500 thsd AMD to exempt the imported equipment from duties.
