One of the priority areas of the strategy implemented by President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov is the development of foreign economic relations. At a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on May 8, the head of state again drew attention to this, instructing to intensify work to increase the volume of exports of products manufactured in our country.
An important role in solving this problem is assigned to the oil and gas industry. Thus, the total value of the products that the enterprises of the fuel and energy complex of Turkmenistan exported over the four months of this year amounted to over 1.87 billion US dollars.
In particular, almost 11.8 billion tons of natural gas was exported. Large quantities of motor gasoline were sold through the State Commodity and Raw Materials Exchange of Turkmenistan, including ECO - 93, produced from natural gas at a plant in the Akhal region, as well as diesel fuel, polypropylene and polyethylene, petroleum coke, aviation and technical kerosene, liquefied gas, base technical oils, petroleum road bitumen, sulfur.
Oil and gas chemical products of Turkmenistan are bought by companies in Russia, the United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, Afghanistan, Great Britain, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Malta, Singapore and other countries.
