Gumdak Oilfield is located in western Turkmenistan. In January 2002, CNPC signed an EOR field contract with Turkmenneft and acquired a 100% stake for five years. Following CNPC`s resumption of the oil field, a comprehensive geological review of the effects of research and development was conducted to develop stimulus and counter-measures programs, resulting in an increase in crude oil production in less than six months. In 2010, natural gas production began with the start of the second phase of construction of our natural gas exploration and development project on the right bank of the Amu-Darya River. Effective and orderly seismic detection and order block drilling resulted in a significant increase in reserves in the Samandepe gas field in Block A, as well as significant discoveries that opened up new exploration routes in the southern, eastern and central parts of Block B. The rehabilitation of mature wells and the development of new wells have significantly increased the production of individual wells and total capacity in the Samandepe gas field. Total natural gas production exceeded 4 billion cubic metres in 2010. New acidification techniques and optimal post-perforation measurements have increased the average daily capacity per mature well from 300,000 cubic meters to 650,000 cubic meters. The average daily power per newly launched has reached well 1-2 million cubic meters, thanks to horizontal and high-angle well holes. The first natural gas processing plant processed 16 million cubic metres of natural gas and supplied 14.5 million cubic metres of commercial gas to the Asia-China pipeline every day.
July 17, 2007 CNPC signed a contract to share the production and a contract for the sale and sale of natural gas with the Turkmen National Agency for the Management and Exploitation of Hydrocarbon Resources or Turkmengaz State Concern. At a business meeting on the sidelines of the first Caspian Economic Forum in the avaza National Tourist Zone on 11 August, the company`s managing director in Turkmenistan, Ruslan bin Abdul Gani, noted that Petronas was the first to launch offshore oil production in the country. Petronas Carigali (Turkmenistan) is one of Turkmenistan`s first partners in the development of offshore fields in the Caspian Sea. In July 1996, the Malaysian investor entered into a production-sharing agreement with the Government of Turkmenistan by obtaining a licence for oil and gas exploration and extraction in the block-1 offshore zone of the Makhtumkuli, Diyarbekir and Garagol Deniz fields. The company has invested approximately $11 billion in oil fields in the Turkmen sector of the Caspian Sea. The offshore gas production and processing infrastructure also includes the makhtumkuli collection platform, Pipelines 73 km long, one-point mooring for export gas condensate, a complex of gas processing plants, storage of 300,000 barrels of natural gas (400,000 tonnes) and a 52.7 km export gas pipeline connected to the onshore facility. 3 September 2013 CNPC and Turkmengaz entered into a 30bcm/a EPC contract for gas production capacity in the Galkynysh gas silea and an additional 25bcm/a gas sales contract. On the site of the facility, a special workshop was built for the assembly of offshore platform structures with a production capacity of 25,000 tons per year. The workshop assembles the pier, breakwaters and beacons.
