New gas field discovered in Turkmenistan

Aug 24, 2015 12:00 AM

A powerful commercial natural gas inflow was obtained at the ‘Bagly-1’ area in the Karakum Desert in Turkmenistan’s Mary Province, the Turkmen newspaper ‘Neutral Turkmenistan’ said.

According to the newspaper this happened after the first exploration well at the area reached a depth of 4,690 meters.

The daily hydrocarbon output at the new field exceeds one and a half million cubic meters.

The newspaper said the new field’s prospect can also be judged from its being located a few dozen kilometers away from the gigantic Galkynysh field, which is famous worldwide for its explored and proven natural gas reserves.

Turkmenistan is a key player in the energy market of the Caspian region and Central Asia.

Currently, Turkmenistan’s gas is being supplied to China, Iran and Russia.
