Interstate Oil and Gas Pipeline Management (92.01)

Project Description

This project was the "predecessor" project that actually formed the basis for the start-up of the INOGATE Programme. It involved the countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova. The objective of the project was to provide technical assistance to the NIS, which had inherited the oil and gas transmission of the former Soviet Union, to take over and operate these systems, introduce new management and operations procedures within the framework of the market-oriented economy and compliance with international rules and standards.

The result of this project was the concept and planning of the multi-annual Tacis interstate programme "INOGATE - Interstate Oil & Gas Transport to Europe".
