Turkmenistan to commission major Galkynysh field in 2013

Turkmenistan, Ashgabat, Nov. 16 / Trend H. Hasanov /

In 2013 Turkmenistan plans to commission the major Galkynysh field, in which capacities will be installed to produce 30 billion cubic meters of tank gas a year, the head of the State Concern Turkmengaz Sahatmurad Mamedov said on Friday.

He addressed his report to delegates of the 17th International Conference on 'The main development directions of Turkmenistan's oil and gas industry and international cooperation'.

"During the first phase of Galkynysh's development project, drilling of production wells as well as construction of modern plants for the desulphurisation of natural gas and production of high quality tank gas to the volume of 30 billion cubic meters per year, planned for commission in 2013, is rapidly being implemented in a unique gas bearing area," the head of state concern said during his speech.

According to him, the second phase of the Galkynysh field's development will also start next year. In September, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow was shown the progress of work in the field. He emphasised the goals of diversifying development of the fuel and energy sector and introduction of Turkmen energy resources to world markets.

'Stressing the importance of a wide use of advanced technology in the work process, the president urged the speeding up of work being undertaken', the statement said. The fact that more than 24.000 people, including over 17.000 local workers, are involved in construction work gives an indication of the scope of the on-going work.

As local mass media reported with the reference to Gaffney, Cline & Associates (UK), Galkynysh is the second largest field in the world in its reserves of fossil fuels at 26.2 trillion cubic meters. According to specialists, the field has a total area of 1800 square kilometres.

In December 2009, the Turkmengas state concern signed contracts on service conditions for the implementation of a range of work with companies such as Gulf Oil & Gas Fze, Petrofac International LLC (UAE), CNPC Chuanging Drilling Engineering Company (PRC) and a consortium of LG International Corp and Hyundai Engineering (South Korea).

CNPC is involved in the gas production of 10 billion cubic meters per year and in particular the drilling and construction of installations for initial gas purification, gas processing plants, loops and collectors - pipelines and the construction of gas pipeline with the length of108 km. The drilling of 22 wells with average depth of 4680 metres is expected.

LG International Corp and Hyundai Engineering Co., Ltd is building a complex for the purification of tank gas from sulphur with an annual capacity of 10 billion cubic meters.

Petrofac International (UAE) LLC is constructing a complex for the purification of tank gas from sulphur with annual capacity of 10 billion cubic meters and ground production facilities designed for obtaining tank gas with capacity of 20 billion cubic meters per year, as well as a 98km long pipeline, special cable and collectors.

Gulf Oil & Gas FZE (UAE) conducts work on the construction of underground facilities to produce 20 billion cubic meters of tank gas a year.

In general, the centre for automated management will operate in Galkynysh. Currently, state concern Turkmengaz and state corporation Turkmengeologia are also conducting drilling operations in six operating gas wells and two wells for wastewater discharge
