The 27th International Conference and Expo "Oil and Gas of Turkmenistan" (OGT-2022) will be held on October 26-28, 2022 in Ashgabat. The Conference is organized by the State Concerns "Turkmengas", "Turkmennebit" and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Turkmenistan in partnership with Turkmen Forum and UK-based GaffneyCline.

The purpose of the Conference and Expo is to strengthen the regional dialogue on further sustainable development of the energy sector, review the latest tendencies in the global regional energy system and expand the opportunities for attracting foreign direct investment to the oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan. The novelty of this year’s event is the Expo, which will run in parallel with the conference and will present the best highlights from the domestic and global oil & gas industries, reinvigorated with new ideas and features to match the current industry agenda. New elements introduced at this year’s Expo will put a key focus on highlighting the importance of acceleration of cooperation between IOCs and NOCs, reinforcing the growing role of mutually beneficial partnerships.

Participation and business meetings on the sidelines of this Conference and Expo will be an excellent platform for establishing business contacts as well as increasing the awareness of potential partners about new investment projects in the fuel and energy and gas chemical complexes of Turkmenistan.

The agenda of the Conference is focused on discussion of such issues as:

the future of energy: challenges and opportunities;

offshore and onshore investment opportunities in the Turkmen oil & gas sector;

new era energy: prospects for domestic & regional development;

environmental aspects of hydrocarbon developments;

innovative technologies and know-how in oil & gas science and education;

Turkmenistan is a major player in the global energy market. The country is one of the states with huge reserves of hydrocarbon raw materials and one of the leading energy countries in the world. Turkmenistan holds the world’s fourth largest proven natural gas reserves, after Russia, Iran, and Qatar. The wealth of the Turkmen mineral resources was clearly confirmed by the international audit of the Galkynysh, Yashlar and Garakel gas fields, which reserves are estimated at 27.4 trillion cubic meters of gas.

The main volumes of Turkmen natural gas supplies are carried out to the People's Republic of China through three lines (A, B and C) of the transnational gas pipeline «Turkmenistan - Uzbekistan - Kazakhstan - China». In addition, deliveries are made in the northern direction to the Russian Federation and in the southern direction to the Republic of Azerbaijan through the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The project of the gas pipeline «Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India» (TAPI) is at the implementation stage. Despite the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing changes on the global markets, the TAPI countries continue to support the implementation of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India Gas Pipeline Project. The 1,853-km pipeline will deliver up to 33 BCMA natural gas from the Galkynysh gas field in Turkmenistan to three off-take points in Afghanistan, three off-take points in Pakistan and a final off-take point at the Pakistan-India border to supply the Indian market. The linear part of the Turkmenistan section of the TAPI pipeline is currently being commissioned.
