MOSCOW, July 8. /TASS/. The Turkmen authorities are claiming that the Russian gas monopoly Gazprom has not been paying Turkmenistan, the largest natural gas supplier in Central Asia, for gas supplies since early 2015.
"OAO Gazprom has not been paying off its debts to Gas Company Turkmengaz since early 2015 for the supplied volumes of Turkmen natural gas," the Oil and Gas Ministry of Turkmenistan said in a statement.
The Russian gas monopoly’s problems are explained by the "continued global economic crisis and economic sanctions imposed by Western countries against Russia," the ministry said.
Gazprom has not yet commented on the Turkmen side’s accusations.
According to the Russian gas monopoly, Gazprom’s purchases of Turkmen natural gas in recent years have amounted to about 10-11 billion cubic meters annually. Gazprom sells Turkmen gas in Europe on the spot market through Gazprom-Germania Group of companies.
