The role of the oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan in the economic development of the country
Holding the fourth place in gas reserves in the world, Turkmenistan strives to comprehensively develop the oil and gas industry of the country for the benefit of economic and social growth in the country, region and the world in general.
This year Turkmenistan celebrates the 25th anniversary of gaining the status of permanent neutrality of the country. In honor of this significant date, special illustrated publications highlighting the long-term activities of various sectors of the country's economy are published in the country. One of such editions is the publication devoted to the oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan.
This publication highlights the power of the country's oil and gas industry, including the description of grandiose projects in the field of energy, chemical products and others. With enormous energy potential, our country is consistently building a multi-vector infrastructure for the export of clean fuel to world markets. Projects implemented in this area play a large role in ensuring regional and global energy security.
It was noted that Turkmenistan fruitfully cooperates with reputable foreign companies in this field and implements such large-scale, strategically important projects as the construction of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline, the Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan-China gas pipeline, Trans-Caspian gas pipeline and others.
Over the years of Independence, thousands of industrial facilities have been built in Turkmenistan. The publication provides examples of constructed objects of international scale, among which a significant event was the commissioning in June 2019 in the Akhal velayat of the world's first plant, where synthetic gas from natural gas is produced on an industrial scale. The industrial complex was included in the Guinness Book of Records as “The world's first gasoline-natural gas plant”, as well as awarded the certificates “Innovative Technologies” of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and “Ecological Clean” of the Environmental Protection Fund (USA).
