Turkmenbasy close to completion of gas storage terminal

Sep 30, 2002 02:00 AM

The construction of a terminal for storing and sending liquefied gas has neared completion in Turkmenbasy sea port in western Turkmenistan. It is being installed for oil and chemical specialists by the Iranian Pars energy company, which won an international tender two years ago.
The capacity of the country's major store is 120,000 tpy of output.

The complex is composed of a railway pier designed for the simultaneous discharge and filling of 16 tank cars, a vehicle station for loading propane onto 30 cars daily, and storage for 6,000 tons of output and some other facilities. The contract cost of the facility is $ 27 mm.
Gas accumulation and aggregating units, which were put into operation last year, are working at full capacity here. The construction of the terminal's reservoir park is now being completed.
