 For eight months of 2021, the volume of production of natural and associated gas in Turkmenistan exceeded 55 billion cubic meters.  This is 10.4 billion cubic meters more than in the same period last year.

 The increase in natural gas production is largely due to the growing demand for environmentally friendly fuels in the world markets.  Thus, Turkmenistan exported almost 31 billion cubic meters of gas, which is 8.3 billion cubic meters more than in January-August 2020.

 China is the main importer of Turkmen gas.  The Central Asia-China gas pipeline is designed to supply 40 billion cubic meters of Turkmen gas per year, and its throughput capacity is 55 billion cubic meters.  Since the launch of this energy pipeline, more than 300 billion cubic meters of commercial gas have been exported to China from the fields of Turkmenistan.

 Along with export, the demand for «blue fuel» in the domestic market of the country is also growing.  This is due to the fact that in recent years, new powerful gas turbine power plants and large gas processing complexes have been commissioned in Turkmenistan, including a polymer plant in Kiyanly, a plant for the production of urea fertilizers in Garabogaz, and a plant for the production of synthetic gasoline in the Akhal region.
