Chevron is interested in establishing long-term partnership with Turkmenistan and willing to take an active part in investment projects in the oil and gas sector, said President of Chevron Nebitgaz BV (Turkmenistan) Douglas Uchikura in an interview with Turkmen journalists.
"Chevron has major plans of work in Turkmenistan. The government of your country has recently received our proposals on cooperation with the Turkmengaz state concern. Our project aims at joint development of hydrocarbon resources that sit in the subsalt sediments at greater depths. Our company owns advanced technologies capable of providing highly efficient development of such deposits," he said.
According to Douglas Uchikura, as part of cooperation, the company also plans to organize trainings for Turkmen specialists to operate Chevron technologies, as well as to invest their own funds into the development of social infrastructure in Turkmenistan, including health, education, small and medium businesses. "We want to expand the capabilities of domestic suppliers in order to meet the needs of the joint project by using local products and services," the head of the company stressed.
