Turkmenistan: the geography of liquefied gas exports is expanding

Ashgabat, March 18 - Neftegaz.RU. The activities of the department for the production of liquefied gas in the Lebap region of Turkmengas are aimed at increasing production volumes and expanding the list of exporters of liquefied gas.

For this valuable product produced at improved facilities, new export directions have been identified.
So, in the past 2021, supplies of liquefied gas from the eastern velayat of our country began to Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

The beginning of 2022 was also marked by impressive production figures:
In January, the department produced about 8.4 thousand tons of liquefied gas
The growth rate compared to January last year was more than 116%

More than 5.4 thousand tons of gas condensate were produced and shipped for the Seydi complex of oil refineries.
Another batch of marketable products was sent to neighboring Afghanistan.

It should be noted that the export figures of liquefied gas at the Nayip and Bagaja gas fields for 2020 amounted to about 95 000 tons.
The growth rate compared to 2019 was 105%.

Despite its vast oil & gas resource base, Turkmenistan is not a major player in energy markets because of the lack of infrastructure, limiting its exporting capabilities.
In the past several years, the country has been increasing investment to develop its reserves and export more gas to countries such as China.

Foreign companies are allowed to participate in Turkmenistan’s oil & gas sector only when they partner with the state-owned Turkmenneft, the largest oil producer in the country, or Turkmengaz, the state-run natural gas company

On March 15, Turkmenistan’s Central Election Commission announced Serdar Berdimuhamedov, 40, the son of current President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, as the victor in last weekend’s elections.
