The study aims to provide a detailed analysis of Turkmenistan’s oil and gas sector, including an overview of the sectors governance structure, major oil and gas producers, production projects involving foreign companies, oil and gas pipeline network, and Turkmen gas production and exports looking out to 2022.

RPI has kept track of the Turkmen petroleum industry for over 20 years, providing a unique platform for our specialists to develop in-depth analyses of both potential and evolutionary risks associated with the countrys production projects.

This study presents detailed data on oil and gas production, exports, and refining and processing activities. It provides a description of the resource base, closely focusing on taxes and regulations applicable to the petroleum sector, including producer licensing as well as the domestic investment climate and potential risks. The report also describes principal oil and gas export routes and their potential transformation in the future. It analyses anticipated changes in the demand for Turkmen oil and gas across major petroleum markets.

The key sections of the report provide insights on the following:

  • The petroleum industrys governance structure, regulatory authorities and their powers. The licensing procedure, taxes and work codes. Country-specific regulatory features regarding the petroleum industry that potential investors must know.
  • The current status of Turkmenistans oil sector: oil reserves and potential discoveries, and historical oil production, refining and export data from 2002 through 2012. Key players and an overview of their production projects. Oil sector infrastructure and crude and petroleum product export routes.
  • The current status of Turkmenistans gas sector: the asset base and potential reserve gains, and historical gas production, processing and export data from 2002 through 2012. Market players and an overview of production projects. Turkmenistans gas export infrastructure and export routes. Prospects of export route diversification.
  • Forecasts of Turkmenistan‘s petroleum sector growth by 2022 based on several scenarios: outlook for oil and gas production and exports as a function of specific domestic and international conditions; and sale markets and demand for Turkmen hydrocarbons over the forecast horizon.
This product could be an important strategic decision-making tool for companies specializing in production of hydrocarbons and provision of oilfield and gas field services, and considering Turkmenistan in terms of their business growth opportunities. The report helps evaluate opportunities and prospects for involvement in oil and gas production projects in Turkmenistan and understand associated risks and risk mitigation approaches and strategies.

Also, the information provided in the report gives a good idea of Turkmenistans petroleum industry as a whole to those interested in the petroleum sector of the Caspian region and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
The forecasts and assumptions about the future evolution of the Turkmen petroleum sector, including projections of production, exports and domestic consumption of oil and gas contained in the study are based on a thorough analysis of information obtained from reliable sources. This allows us to predict growth prospects, opportunities, risks and threats for both the sector as a whole and its individual players.
