Uzbekistan To Raise Price For Gas Exports

27 October 2005 -- Uzbekistan is set to raise the price of its natural gas exports to Russia and its Central Asian neighbors beginning in January.

Uztransgaz, a division of Uzbekistan's state energy company, made the announcement today.

The company said prices will go from $42 to $54 per thousand cubic meters.

Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan all buy Uzbek gas. Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, which have no gas of their own, have fought price hikes in the past.
