Turkmenistan, Ashgabat, Oct. 18 / Trend H. Hasanov /
The Russian Stroytransgaz company has completed operations in Turkmenistan to construct the Malay-Bagtyyarlyk gas pipeline and related facilities, including a crossing under the Amu Darya River as well as a gas metering station, the company said.
The Turkmen State Commission signed an acceptance covering a guarantee for all the operating facilities.
Turkmengaz State Concern is a customer and according to the contract, the design, equipment and materials were supplied and facilities constructed.
The Malay-Bagtyyarlyk section is part of the Central Asia-China gas pipeline with a total length of 7000 km, ensuring a supply of 30 billion cubic meters of natural gas from Turkmenistan to China through Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
The length of the line part of the gas pipeline is 185.4 km and the diameter - 1420 mm.
'This meant the project's implementation required the use of complex engineering solutions', the information said..
Stroytransgaz built a two-kilometre passage to lay a gas pipeline via the Amu Darya River. The engineers used a directional drilling method to allow the natural hydrological position, fish and fauna of the River Amu Darya to be maintained and retain the natural landscape of the surrounding area.
