Turkmenistan, Ashgabat, Oct.7 / Trend, H. Hasanov /
Turkmenneft has initiated the commercial development of its oil and gas fields offshore.
The development of the
Northern Goturdepe field in the shallow water of the Caspian Sea has started.
Already in 2011, as a result of the successful restoration of the sea well No.29 a new reservoir was opened at a depth of 4,000 meters.
It is also stressed that the wells No.147 and 37 drilled on the shallow water of the Caspian Sea in 2011 not only justified geologists and drillers' forecasts, but "even surpassed the wildest expectations by many times."
They gave a fountain flow at 830 and 730 tons of oil per day, thus strongly confirming the forecasts of the Turkmen geologists.
The drillers are continuing to develop Northern Goturdepe.
