MOSCOW, March 19 (Itar-Tass) — Stroitransgaz does not intend to reduce its activities in Syria despite the difficulties related to mass riots in the country, the company’s head, Sergei Makarov, said on Monday.
“We don’t intend to reduce our activities in Syria. At present, Stroitransgaz continues to provide technical support for the first gas processing plant in Syria. We also continue the construction of the second plant,” Makarov said.
He stressed, “Now special security measures are effective in Syria. They are designed to ensure safety of our personnel. Syria, i.e. the Syrian Gas Company and law enforcers, helps us actively,” the Russian official stressed.
The company said in its report that it had ended the regular stage of the works: spare parts for the gas processing plant had been supplied in full in order to ensure safe operation of the plant.
Under the contract, since the gas processing plant has been put into operation, Stroitransgaz will fulfil its obligations within a year. Afterwards the company will continue to provide technical support to Syria at its request.
Stroitransgaz has worked in Syria since 2000. At present, the contracts are being realised to build the Arab gas pipeline with a total length of 319 kilometres and the gas processing plant (South Middle Area Gas Exploitation Project).
The gas processing plant is the second facility, which was built by Stroitransgaz in Syria. In 2005 the Russian company won the tender for the construction of the gas processing plant in central Syria.
