Time-Tested Partnership

The implementation of big investment joint projects of Uzbekneftegaz National Holding Company and Lukoil has been in progress. The largest projects come to gas extraction at the Khauzak-Shady and Hissar.

The Russian partner has recently published data on the extraction of natural gas under its projects in Uzbekistan. Approximately 85% of the total of 30 billion cubic meters of extracted blue fuel was produced at the Khauzak-Shady in the Bukhara region.

The industrial gas production was launched in November 2007, and the West Shady field was commissioned in 2011. An up-to-date booster compressor station, which has increased gas production by 20%, was commissioned in the field last year.

Preliminary gas units were put into trial operation at the Kuvachi-Alat field of Kandym group of fields and at the Northern Shady section of the Dengizkul field in May 2015 under the Kandym Early Gas Project. To date, the cumulative production of gas at the Khauzak-Shady field has exceeded 25 billion cubic meters.

The extraction of natural gas at Southwestern Hissar began in December 2011. The Full Development of Hissar Project has entered into the implementation stage in spring of 2013. Major construction projects include the field support base and an integrated preliminary gas unit with the capacity of 5 and 1.8 billion cubic meters of gas per year respectively. The volume of accumulated gas production at the Hissar field has reached 5 billion cubic meters.
