LUKoil Mulls Expansion in Georgia

LUKoil is ready to expand its business in Georgia and could become involved in the development of hydroelectric resources in the country, company president Vagit Alekperov has said.

Alekperov met with Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili on Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, after which he told journalists "Our company is working steadily on the gas market in Georgia … We have a great interest in expanding business in this country and in the Black Sea region in general."

LUKoil's CEO added that his company had not excluded the possibility of working on the development of hydroelectric power plants in Georgia, should it prove to be "economically viable."

LUKoil has worked in Georgia since 2002 and has a large number of gas stations in the country.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
