Preparation of the preliminary technical project of the plant for the production of 10 billion cubic meters of commercial gas per year is one of the main issues that were discussed during video conversations between the State concerns "Turkmenhimiya" and "Turkmengaz" and representatives of the Japanese Corporation Mitsubishi. This plant is planned to be built as part of the next stage of industrial development of the “Galkynysh” gas field.
As noted, Turkmenistan and Japan have successful experience in these areas. One of the latest examples of this is the commissioning of the largest plant in the region "Garabogazkarbamid", whose products-nitrogen fertilizers-are in high demand on world markets.
