More than 2 billion cubic meters of natural gas was exported to China from the “Malay” gas field in the Lebap velayat over three months of this year. Thus, the export plan was fulfilled by 196,6%, reports Nebit-Gaz.
The Lebap gas production department received about 3 billion 183 million cubic meters of natural gas during this period. The volume of gas condensate production for the same period amounted to about 14 thousand tons, while the plan was fulfilled by 115%.
The “Malay” gas field located about 70 kilometers from Turkmenabat was put into pilot operation in 1986. Today 91 wells are operating there. Gas supplies from this field are carried out both to the domestic market and for export for the transnational gas pipeline Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan-China through the Malay-Bagtyyarlyk gas pipeline with a length of 188 kilometers.
Let us remind you, that last year the President of Turkmenistan launched a new booster gas compressor station with a capacity of 30 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year at the “Malay” field. This project was implemented by the State Concern “Turkmengas” together with Petro Gas LLP (United Kingdom). Gas compressor equipment was supplied by Dresser-Rand S. A (France).
