NOVO-ORARYOVO, August 1 (Itar-Tass) - Financing of the prospecting project at the Shakhrinav field in Tajikistan will reach 15 million U.S. dollars in 2013, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday after talks with his Tajik counterpart Emomali Rakhmon.
The Russian leader noted that Russia’s gas monopolist Gazprom was supplying 40 percent of oil products consumed by Tajikistan. “Currently, the company is carrying out prospecting works at this promising filed [Shakhrinav],” he said. “Financing of the projects will stand at 15 million U.S. dollars in 2013.”
Putin also spoke about cooperation between the two countries in the area of telecommunications. He reminded that Russian telecom operators MegaPhone and BeeLine had invested about 200 million U.S. dollars in joint ventures in Tajikistan. “Fourth-generation mobile communications services on the base of advanced broadband technologies are already available in Tajikistan,” he added.
