Specialists of the State Concern "Turkmennebit" (Turkmenneft) discovered promising oil pools during the exploration activities at Barsagelmes field in Balkan province. An oil gusher was obtained during the development of exploratory well N 435. According to preliminary data, the daily flow rate of the well amounts to 129 tons per day.
As the Turkmenistan.ru correspondent reports quoting the State Concern "Turkmennebit", the oil density of the lower layer would provide an opportunity for further growth in production of liquid hydrocarbons.
The field research works are currently being conducted by the Institute "Nebitgazylmytaslama" with the view to examining the parameters of the layer and identifying the opportunities for mining, the State Concern said.
