Galkynysh gas field
(Turkom. Galkynyş) – the zone of the super-giant gas and oil field of Turkmenistan, located in the Mary velayat. Operation began in the summer of 2013. In connection with the discovery and development of a super-gigantic zone of gas fields on the territory of Turkmenistan, the President of Turkmenistan signed a Resolution on November 18, 2011, ordering to name the South Yoloten-Osman, Minara and adjacent fields the Galkynysh gas field.South Yolotan South Yolotan and its transportationSouth Yolotan, South Yoloten (Turkom.Günorta Ýolöten-Osman) – the super-giant gas and oil field of Turkmenistan, located in the Mary region, in the southeastern part of the country, 50 km from the regional center of Mary near the city of Iolotan. Opened in November 2006.CharacteristicThe supergiant Iolotan field is spread over an area of 1800 km². According to preliminary estimates, the thickness of the productive layer here is over 1200 meters. Yolotan is associated with the Osman oil and gas field, they are both one structure. The deposits are located at a depth of 3.9-5.1 km. Oil and gas content is associated with Cretaceous and Jurassic sediments.In Iolotan, exploration work is underway in all directions: in the north – to the Minara deposit, in the south – to the Osman deposit, in the west – to the Gazanly area and in the east – to the Yashlar deposit.In addition to gas, significant oil reserves are also concentrated here, the commercial development of which began in 2007, increasing by an order of magnitude the volume of oil products produced at the Seydi oil refinery. This oil reservoir is distinguished by unique characteristics; here, there are practically no foreign impurities in the oil, which is extremely rare in the practice of oil production.Belongs to the Turan oil and gas province of the Murghab oil and gas region.StocksGaffney, Cline & Associates (UK) estimates the initial natural gas reserves at 21.2 trillion cubic meters. … Oil reserves are 300 million tons.MiningNatural gas production in 2009 amounted to 40 billion m3.Participants in the developmentThe operator of the development is the Turkmen state-owned company Turkmengaz. The first president of Turkmenistan, Saparmurat Niyazov, invited the Chinese CNPC and the Enerji to participate in the exploration and development of the field and proposed to expand the Central Asia – Center gas pipeline to transport gas from Iolotan to Europe  (unavailable link)  …MinaraMinara (until 1991 – Maysk) Is a gas field in Turkmenistan located in the Mary region, in the southeastern part of the country. Maysk opened in 1970 and Minara opened in July 2009. The between Maysk and Minara, these are structures: Maysk – suprasalt, and Minara – subsalt[значимость факта?]…Gas content is associated with the Lower Cretaceous and Upper Jurassic deposits. Deposits at a depth of 2.9-4.1 km. The initial reserves of natural gas are 200 billion cubic meters.The operator of the development is the Turkmen state-owned company Turkmengaz.
