The State concern "Turkmengas", being one of the largest energy enterprises in the world, carries out exploration, production, preparation, transportation and processing of natural gas.
Turkmenistan ranks fourth in the world in terms of natural gas reserves. With enormous energy potential, our country is consistently building a multi-vector infrastructure for the export of clean fuel to world markets. Projects implemented in this area play large role in ensuring regional and global energy security.
A good example of this is the Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan-China gas pipeline, in which the idea of rebuilding the Great Silk Road, linking the peoples of Eurasia for thousands of years, was embodied. The interstate pipeline includes three parallel lines (A, В and C), the length of each is 1830 km. Gas coming from Central Asia is supplied to the population of, 22 provinces and autonomous regions of the PRC, which is over 500 million people.
Since the launch of the pipeline in December 2009, over 260 billion cubic meters of natural gas has been exported to China from Turkmenistan. In accordance with interstate agreements, with the commissioning of line D, the supply of Turkmen gas to the PRC will increase to 65 billion cubic meters per year.
Another strategically important initiative is the construction of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline, with a total length of over 1840 kilometers and a throughput capacity of 33 billion cubic meters of gas per year.
As the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov emphasizes, the new energy route through which long-term deliveries of natural gas to the largest countries of Southeast Asia will be provided, will give a powerful impetus to the economic development of the region, will contribute to solving social and humanitarian issues, strengthening peace and stability.
The significance of this project is confirmed by a special resolution adopted in March 2018 at the meeting of the UN Security Council. The construction of TAPI is supported by many states, as well as international financial institutions.
Currently, the State concern “Turkmengas" supplies Turkmen natural gas from the Dovletabat-Deryalyk gas pipeline to the Russian Federation. There are also technical opportunities for the supply of Turkmen gas from the Korpeje-Gurtguyy and Dovletabat-Hangeran gas pipelines in a southerly direction.
