Kazakhstan's energy infrastructure will be ready for the transit of Russian gas to Uzbekistan by the autumn-winter season of 2024, Kazakh Energy Minister Almasadam Satkaliyev said.

"The Kazakh side has declared the readiness to give technical support for gas transit across our territory. We will be able to provide our infrastructure as soon as the negotiations are finalized," Satkaliyev said 

He noted that the infrastructure will be ready by the autumn and winter season of the next year.

"We in Kazakhstan are interested in this transit, from the angle of both a certain transit fee and higher reliability of energy supply to the Central Asian region in general," the minister said.
