Turkmenistan, Ashgabat, May 19 / Trend H.Hasanov /
President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov approved the statute of the Turkmengeology State Corporation and the structure of its central office.
According to a document, corporation is prescribed in the prescribed manner to create a self-supporting state geological and supervisory service, which is the authority of government and which oversees underground water deposits.
In accordance with the document, Turkmengeology together with the Ministry of Justice of Turkmenistan is instructed in a month to prepare and submit to the Cabinet of Ministers of Turkmenistan proposals for amendments to the legislation of Turkmenistan.
This corresponds to the "objectives of further improvement of Turkmengeology", strengthening of its material-technical base and becoming a profitable industry, and bring the exploration in accordance with international standards.
Turkmengeology is a powerful industrial organization, ensuring the supply of the reserves of hydrocarbon, underground water, minerals and construction materials.
State corporation has:
- 4 geophysical expeditions;
- Geological Information Center;
- 4 offices of exploratory drilling;
- 2 exploration expeditions;
- 4 hydro-geological expeditions;
- Central Laboratory of the production;
- Geological Foundation;
- Office of Logistics.
Offices of the exploratory drilling perform work in drilling and testing of parametric, exploratory and appraisal wells. Offices of Ahalneftegazrazvedka, Maryneftegazrazvedka, Balkanneftegazrazvedka and Lebapneftegazrazvedka have 37 drilling crews and 15 crews to test wells.
Geophysical Service has 4 field expeditions and machining center equipped with modern field equipment, processing and interpretive systems.
Geophysicists of Turkmenistan annually serve up to 5,000 linear kilometers of 2D seismic, 800 square kilometers of 3D seismic, 1,600 square kilometers of detailed gravity, in 15-20 wells studies of the GSP are underway. During 2000-2006 GG Turkmengeology carried out more than 4,000 square kilometers of 3D seismic survey in the Eastern (right bank of the Amu Darya- Altyn-Asyr block, Yashlar - Southern Iolotan) and western Turkmenistan (Akpatlavuk-Chekichler, Korpeje, Goturdepe, Ekerem block , Cheleken and Nebitledzhe - Southern Gamyshla). These studies have led to deep-seated sites with hydrocarbon resources in the hundreds of million tons of oil and hundreds of billion cubic meters of gas.
Geological Information Center processes and interprets geophysical data:
- Processing of 2D-3D seismic on Geoclaster, Omega and Promax, up to 10,000 linear km a year-2D, 1,000 square kilometers a year -3D;
- Interpretation and modeling on Geoframe and Petrel packages;
- GSP - Geobas and Promax packages up to 20 wells per year
Center has been collecting geological data and the preparation of information packets with Finder and Petrovision packages.
