Background

After the collapse of USSR, the successor states signed multiple contracts on cooperation in maintaining existing gas infrastructure, including the newly transboundary Central Asia - Center gas pipeline. [8][9][10] The main function of the pipeline is to transport Turkmen gas from Dauletabad and Okarem gas fields to Russia.[1] However, there have been disagreements between Russia and Turkmenistan that occasionally led to the halt in the operations of the pipeline,[11] most recently in 2016. The gas supply resumed in 2019.[12]
