Uzbekistan increasing gas production at one of southern fields

3 March 2016

The Uzbek National Holding Company (NHC) ‘Uzbekneftegaz’ has started construction of a booster compressor station at the oil and gas field ‘Sharkiy Berdakh’ (Kashkadarya region, south of Uzbekistan) worth $293.94 million, a representative of the holding told Trend.

The ‘Uzbekneftegaz’ NHC signed a contract for the supply of technological equipment, contract supervision, starting-up and adjustment at the booster compression station with the PJSC ‘Sumy Machine-Building Science and Production Association’ (Ukraine) in late 2015, according to the representative of the holding.

Supply of the equipment should be completed in spring of 2016, and the launch of the booster compressor station is planned for November 2016.

Commissioning of the booster compressor station with design capacity of 18 megawatts will make it possible to increase production at the field to two billion cubic meters of gas and 43,100 tons of condensate per year.

The project is financed through a loan of the Fund for Reconstruction and Development of Uzbekistan (FRDU) worth $57.87 million and own funds of the ‘Uzbekneftegaz’ NHC.
