Oct 25, 2013 12:00 AM

Recent production statistics indicate the Galkynysh (formerly called South Yolotan) gas field is bigger than previously thought, the State News Agency of Turkmenistan reported October 23, citing state-owned Turkmengeologiya.

A well near the field is producing 517,700 cu. m of gas daily, the company said.

The well's productivity indicates that the gas field in Mary Oblast extends farther north than previously defined, Turkmengeologiya chief geologist Amangeldi Atayev said, adding that its estimated reserves will increase too.

Turkmenistan began commercial gas production in Galkynysh in September.

It contains between 13.1 and 21.2 trillion cu. m (tcm) of gas, a British consultancy said.
