Gazprom's Gas Output in Uzbekistan Up 5% in 2013

Gazprom’s gas production in Uzbekistan in 2013 was 315 million cubic meters, a 5% increase over 2012, Trend News Agency reported citing a statement by Gazprom EP International.

The Russia giant produces natural gas at the Shakhpakhty field in North-West Uzbekistan.

During 2013, Gazprom International experts carried out repairs on seven wells at the field and commissioned four new ones, said Trend.

The Shakhpakhty gas condensate field was opened in 1962. Initial gas reserves of an industrial category were approved to 46.5 billion cubic meters and industrial production began in 1974 and reached 2.5 billion cubic meters per year.

Gas produced at Shakhpakhty is delivered to the Karakalpakstan compressor station and then supplied to consumers via Central Asia-Centre gas pipeline.

The total volume of gas produced by Gazprom in the field since 2004 is 2.5 billion cubic meters, added Trend.
