Facility will produce 8.1bn cubic metres of gas each year
Tashkent, LUKOIL and a consortium headed by Hyundai Engineering (South Korea) have signed a contract for procurement and construction of the Kandym Gas Processing Plant in Uzbekistan.
The facility will have an annual capacity of 8.1bn cubic meters of gas and will process sour natural gas from the Kandym group of fields located in the Bukhara Region of Uzbekistan to produce treated natural gas and stable gas condensate, as well as solid and granulated sulphur.
The construction of the Kandym Gas Processing Plant is LUKOIL's largest investment project in
Uzbekistan, and will create more than 2,000 permanent positions.
The project will create over 2,000 jobs, and during the peak construction period, will employ more than 10,000 workers at various facilities.
Hyundai Engineering will prepare the project feasibility study and detailed design.
LUKOIL has been implementing the Kandym project in partnership with the National Holding Company Uzbekneftegaz since 2004 as part of the Kandym-Khauzak-Shady-Kungrad PSA.
The Kandym group consists of six gas condensate fields – Kandym, Kuvachi-Alat, Akkum, Parsankul, Khoji and West Khoji.
