Over the last two years, transportation of Azeri natural gas via Georgia has decreased. Accordingly, Georgia received less natural gas for the transit of Azeri gas through Georgia. In 2013 Georgia received 677 million cubic meters of gas, which is 40 million cubic meters less than in 2012 and 60 million cubic meters less than in 2011.

According to the contract between Azerbaijan and Georgia, the latter receives 5% of the transited natural gas.

Apart from this amount of natural gas, Georgia also receives 10% of Russian natural gas transited from Russia to Armenia through Georgia.
