Gazli - Shymkent gas pipeline resumes work after fire
The gas supply on the Gazly-Shymkent gas pipeline in Uzbekistan has been resumed, the Ministry of Energy of Uzbekistan said.
"The operation of the pipeline has been fully resumed and the gas is flowing normally," the ministry said, noting that since July 23, it resumed working in test mode.
On July 20, a break occurred in the 76 km section of the Gazli-Chimkent gas pipeline on the territory of the Shofirkansky District of the Bukhara Region. The ministry reports that this site passes through a deserted zone. The nearest settlement is at a distance of 45-50 km of the accident site. The gas line on the 73-100 km section was cut off to prevent leakage.
