Georgia is among Iran's latest gas customers, starting import of gas for power plant consumption.

Managing Director of National Iranian Gas Exports Company (NIGEC) Ali-Reza Kameli had already said a gas exports deal is going to be signed with Georgian GIEC company.
Kameli said based on the contract, in four months, 40 million cubic meters gas will be shipped to Georgia.
Ministry of Petroleum quoted Pan Armenian website as saying that the import through Armenian territory in the first six months of 2016 will cost Georgia $6.2 million.
Georgia imported 24,700,000 cubic meters of gas from Iran via Armenia in the said six months.
