S.Ossetian Gas Pipeline Examined

A group of specialists from PromGaz, a Russian company, are visiting breakaway South Ossetia to study the area through which a new gas pipeline will be laid, the South Ossetian Press and Information Committee reported on July 26.

Russia?s Gazprom began construction of the pipeline linking North Ossetia and the breakaway region last October, prompting protests from Tbilisi.

PromGaz, a daughter company of Gazprom?s, is in charge of the project, which is reportedly worth 15 billion Rubles (over USD 580 million). The project is funded by Gazprom.

The 163-km long pipeline is slated to become the highest in the world with some sections at 3,150 meters above sea level, chief of the project, Anatoly Tandelov, told RIA Novosti in June.
