Turkmenistan: Striking lucky again with new gas find
Preliminary estimates suggest that the find is capable of producing an impressive 1.5 million cubic metres/day. This would make a significant contribution to the Turkmenistan-China pipeline, which is supplied by the Bagtyyarlyk contract area. At the end of last year construction began on a new compressor station to allow Shiringuyy gas to be fed into the pipeline. The station will be complete by 2014 and will be able to process 9bcm of gas every year.
Turkmen media have yet to release details on the production timeframe or the geological conditions of the new field.
