Turkmenistan, Ashgabat, Jan. 25 / Trend H. Hasanov /
According to the decree of the Turkmen President, the Turkmenbashi oil refinery has entered into a self-funded new contract with Petro Gas LLP (Great Britain),an official Turkmen source said.
The matter rests in completing the implementation of environmental projects and construction of sewage treatment plants, industrial sewage systems and water recycling at the enterprise. The document stipulates commissioning of the facilities in August 2015.
Furthermore according to the document, after full calculations of the work to be carried out, the contracts signed with the Emerol LTD (Ireland) company in 2002 and 2007 will be terminated and connected to a partial fulfilment of transaction terms by the contractor.
Petro Gas LLP previously completed another project in Turkmenistan. In 2011, the second branch of the bypass pipe of the gas pipeline linking the Dovletabad field with the Deryalyk gas compressor station was commissioned in Dashoguz province.
As reported, the facility worth about $50 million was equipped with modern tele-mechanical equipment providing centralised automatic management of its crane units, cameras for launch and reception of treatment devices.
In the shortest possible time, the new gas artery was laid in Zaunguz Karakum, from 435 to 381 kilometres of the CAC interstate energy highway (Central-Asia-Centre), transporting the fuel to the CIS countries.
Turkmenistan plans to increase the capacity of the country's oil refining field to 15 million tons of oil a year in 2015, a further 20 million tons in 2020, 22 million tons- in 2025 and 30 million tons in 2030.
The country currently produces about 10 million tons of oil a year, most of which is processed in local refineries
