The opening of the exhibition of innovative technologies and services of national and foreign players in the energy market kicked off the international forum “Oil and Gas of Turkmenistan”, which brought together more than 500 delegates in Ashgabat representing 206 companies from 45 countries, as well as government agencies, academic and diplomatic circles, financial institutions.
President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov sent a welcoming address to the forum participants. The head of state expressed confidence that “a large-scale forum designed to familiarize the world community with the successes of the oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan and promote the exchange of experience with foreign partners in this area will significantly increase the production, processing and diversification of energy supplies to international markets.”
Being one of the major exporters of energy resources, Turkmenistan stands for the formation of sustainable international systems for their transportation. The construction of gas pipelines and transport and transit corridors will be a key factor in maintaining sustainable development and stability in the region, the Turkmen leader noted in his address, citing the Turkmenistan-China gas artery and the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India transnational gas pipeline being laid as an example.
Currently, the development of one of the world’s largest blue fuel deposits “Galkynysh”, the development of hydrocarbon deposits of the Turkmen shelf of the Caspian Sea with the attraction of foreign investment is going on, the petrochemical and gas chemical industries of the processing sector are developing.
All these areas are reflected in the exposition “Oil and Gas of Turkmenistan” – OGT-2022, which unfolded at the site of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the country. The show is opened by Turkmen key structures and enterprises of the fuel and energy complex, demonstrating their successes and potential for cooperation, promising projects.
Technological capabilities and current proposals are also presented by leading foreign companies – partners of Turkmenistan in the energy sector. In general, more than 50 companies demonstrate the development vectors of the oil and gas industry, the latest developments and industry trends at the exhibition.
The exhibition itself is an innovation of the traditional OGT forum, which until this version was held in the format of an international congress. Now it has been supplemented by an exposition part, located in the immediate vicinity of the conference venue, which will begin work in the afternoon.
The “presentation” of the event also deserves attention: this year the organizers took care of the stylish design of the forum site, conducive to focusing on its main tasks, goals and significance.
