Turkmenistan searching for underground water

BAKU, Azerbaijan, September 9

By Jeila Aliyeva - Trend:

The Koitendag geological exploration expedition of Turkmenistan’s Turkmengeologiya State Corporation is working to search for underground water, refine its reserves, and operate wells, Trend reports with reference to Nebit-Gas electronic newspaper.

The work is being carried out to provide sufficient water to the settlements of the Lebap region of the country.

New wells were drilled in the territory of the country's Halach district, as well as the Garabekevul well was re-evaluated for operational water reserves last year.

Within the framework of the general program for providing settlements of Turkmenistan with clean drinking water, numerous water treatment plants have been built. New water wells are the main resource in ensuring efficient water supply to water treatment facilities.

Earlier, Turkmengeologiya conducted work on searching for underground waters, as well as clarifying their reserves in the Akhal region of Turkmenistan.

To obtain the necessary data, more than 700 wells were drilled in different years, using which the groundwater level is monitored.

Turkmenistan’s Turkmengeology State Concern is studying the geological structure of reservoirs, as well as working to identify hydrocarbon resources. Based on the obtained results, it is planned to start preparing for drilling, the report said earlier.
