Large Uzbek gas & condensate field under compression

Jul 29, 1997 02:00 AM

July 15, 1997 A consortium of US M.W. Kellogg Company and Japan's Nissho Iwai has completed construction of a $ 200 million gas compressor station on the Kokdumalak gas field in Uzbekistan. The facility will allow reinjection of gas into a reservoir 3,000 metres (9,800 feet) deep. "This will produce an additional 44 million tonnes of high-value gas condensate over the life of the field,'' they said. The gas reinjection programme will continue for 20 years. The U.S. firm and its Japanese partner invested a total of $ 163 million in the facility.
The statement said the project marked the first time a former Soviet republic had obtained medium-term funding through the United States Export-Import Bank. It also marked the first joint financing from the Japanese Export-Import Bank and Japan's Ministry of International Trade and Industry. Uzbekistan's national Uzbekneftegas oil and gas corporation put in another $ 37 million.
Kokdumalak, with proven reserves of 97.8 million tonnes of oil, 96.3 million tonnes of condensate and 143.7 billion cubic metres of natural gas, is Uzbekistan's biggest condensate field. According to Uzbekneftegaz, the field, situated some 300 km (187 miles) south-west from the capital of Tashkent, produces around 4 million tonnes of oil and gas condensate a year. Its gas condensate will be transported via a pipeline to the town of Bukhara in southern Uzbekistan, where French Technip plans to launch in August the first part of a condensate refinery with an annual capacity of 2.5 million tonnes.

Last year Uzbekistan produced 7.6 million tonnes of oil and gas condensate and 48 bn cm of natural gas.
