Turkmenistan Still Has Uncovered Gas Reserves

A powerful commercial inflow of gas is reported from Well 102 in South Iolotan in the Mary region of Turkmenistan

A powerful commercial inflow of gas is reported from Well 102 in South Iolotan in the Mary region of Turkmenistan. The target well depth is estimated at 4,500 meters but the productive interval was discovered at the depth of 4,360 meters, Caucaz.com reported.

It confirms Turkmen scientists' forecasts of the still undiscovered gas resources.

Specialists discovered a whole group of quite promising structures. South Iolotan is one of them. Commercial inflow of gas produces 1.3 million cubic meters of gas every twenty-four hours from the depths of 4,190 and 4,614 meters. Thickness of the gas-containing reservoir is believed to exceed 260 meters. Well 102 is another confirmation of the vast potential of the eastern regions of the country from the standpoint of the task of upping gas extraction. There is oil in Iolotan as well. Oil production there began in 2006, making Iolotan another source of raw materials for the Seidy Refinery.
