Turkmenistan’s super-giant gas field renamed as “Galkynysh”

The Turkmen specialists believe that natural gas reserves discovered in Southern Yoloten-Osman, Minara fields, as well as gas deposits in the adjacent areas make one giant oil field. This was stated by Vice-Premier Baymyrat Hojamuhammedov at a meeting of the Government of Turkmenistan.

In this regard, President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov issued a decree, according to which this super-giant oil and gas area, including Southern Yoloten - Osman, Minara and other fields have been renamed as “Galkinish” (Revival).

It should be recalled that a block of fields called Southern Yoloten-Osman, Yashlar and Minara discovered in the eastern part of the country, whose gas reserves are estimated at 26.2 trillion cubic meters of gas, is recognized as the second in the world. These data were confirmed by independent audit conducted by international consulting company “Gaffney, Cline & Associates” (Great Britain).
