In years 2015 - 2020 annual Gas Stream potential in Georgia
may reach 45-50 billion m3
Strategic Gas storage – consumers benefits
High reliability of supply:
 Georgia, Turkey
 Nabucco (Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary,
Austria)
 Turkey-Greece-Italy interconnectors
 Commercial robustness- gas supply can not be
turned off from day to day
 Gradual increase of supply capacity is possible

It is obvious that the construction of the UGS
facility together with the power complex
is feasible. The power complex includes:
1. Underground Gas Storage with the 500
mcm working volume;
2. Gas turbine, linked with the Steam turbine;
3. Pipelines and compressor for CO2 injection
4. Oil producing field.
5. Oil refinery.
The last, together with the additional volumes from
the oil field, by injecting
the CO2, could be supplied with the imported oil.
The picture below describes the power complex
