A large plant for producing liquid fuel from natural gas (GTL) will be constructed in Derweze district of Turkmenistan’s Ahal province, said the message from the country’s Ministry of Oil and Gas Industry and Mineral Resources.

The new plant will process 3.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas and produce 1.691 million tons of liquid fuel per year, according to the message.

During a government meeting, Turkmenistan’s President Gurbanguly Berdimuhammadov pointed out that creating such enterprises is a key vector of further diversification of the country’s fuel and energy industry, according to the ministry.

“Development of the gas chemical complex is aimed at increasing the volume of high- quality gas processing products and increasing their share in the export to world markets,” said the ministry.

Thus, the priority of Turkmenistan’s energy strategy will be the export of finished products from deep processing of natural gas based on the latest achievements of scientific and technical progress, technical re-equipment of the facilities of petrochemical industry and construction of new gas and oil refineries.
