Turkmengaz said in a statement on its website late Monday that gas deliveries had resumed "after a commercial pause, initiated by Gazprom in early 2016." Turkmengaz made no mention of the volumes the company would export to Russia or the value of the new deal.
In 2015, Gazprom announced plans to cut imports of Turkmen gas to four billion cubic metres (bcm) per year, down from 10 bcm in 2010.
The move was followed by a complete cessation of purchases announced at the beginning of 2016, adding to the pressure on Turkmenistan's economy which is highly dependent on hydrocarbons as a source of hard currency.
