Turkmenistan is experiencing a new era in its development - a period of renaissance and great transformation. Accordingly, Turkmenistan's oil & gas industry has become an important contributor to the development of the entire economy. As a result, the Government of Turkmenistan has created and is currently implementing a long-term plan for the development of both oil and gas industries through 2030. Investment openness of Turkmenistan, commitment to dialogue, and the willingness to implement and support new projects is demonstrated by the recent multi-billion dollar contracts awarded to international companies.
The government has emphasized the priorities for the development of the oil and gas industry. Among them: the implementation of new exploration and production projects; the rapid industrial development of onshore and also offshore oil & gas resources located and in the Turkmen sector of the Caspian Sea and its coastal zone; to increase efficiency in the development of existing fields; the development of refining infrastructure and capacity; the development of the chemical sector; the expansion of domestic and international transport infrastructure; the implementation of the advanced technologies and modern techniques; the training and education of Turkmen nationals.
Turkmenistan intends to develop mutually beneficial partnerships with many countries of the World and develop a strategy on attracting foreign companies with modern technologies and know-how that meet international standards.
