The State Oil Company of the Azerbaijani Republic (SOCAR) said that the fire at the Mozdok-Kazimagomed Gas Pipeline in Dagestan has not affected Azerbaijani gas supplies to Russia, Trend reports.

Two districts in Dagestan’s Kizilyurt have experienced a gas shortage after a fire at the local gas pipeline.The fire started at the Mozdok-Kazimagomed Gas Pipeline in the Kizilyurtovsky District on Thursday night. It occurred at the 676th km of the 1200 mm diameter pipeline.

SOCAR and Gazprom signed a deal on purchase of Azerbaijani gas in Baku on October 14, 2009. A supplement to the contract was signed in Baku in early September 2010. Gazprom was to receive 2 billion cubic meters of gas in 2011 and even more in 2012. However, Russia did not receive the agreed gas volumes.

Russia signed an additional agreement to increase purchases of Azerbaijani gas from 1.5 billion cubic meters to 3 billion. The document was signed in Sochi on January 24, 2012.

Azerbaijan started supplying Russia with gas on January 1, 2010.
