Turkmenistan builds up gas potential at the Galkynysh field


Turkmenistan, which has the world's fourth largest natural gas reserves, continues to develop its oil and gas industry and export potential. Particular importance is attached to the industrial development of the world's largest gas field Galkynysh, whose reserves are estimated at almost 27 trillion cubic meters, "Neutral Turkmenistan" reports.

Today this field is a guarantor of reliable supply of raw materials to international projects, including the interstate gas pipelines Turkmenistan-China and Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India.

Currently, the Galkynysh field is at the stage of pilot operation and in the future the rate of gas withdrawal will increase.

According to experts, in the future, with the implementation of seven stages of development of the giant Galkynysh field, the annual production of natural gas throughout the field will reach about 200 billion cubic meters of "blue fuel". This will ensure the energy independence and security of Turkmenistan, as well as contribute to the socio-economic development of the country and the region.
