Socar and Uzbekneftegaz join forces in Uzbekistan

Azerbaijan state-run energy company Socar has signed a memorandum for cooperation and joint activity with its Uzbek counterpart Uzbekneftegaz, the national holding company. The two entities have agreed to join forces in oil and gas exploration and development as well as other opportunities in energy markets.

The MOU was signed on the sidelines of a trade fair, the Oil & Gas exhibition and conference, in the capital Tashkent, by Socar’s president Rovnag Abdullaev and Uzbekneftegaz CEO, Alisher Sultanov.

According to Socar sources, the two companies have not identified prospects for their planned co-operation. Uzbekistan aims to increase gas production up to 66bn m³/yr by 2020, according to Uzbekneftegaz, whose programme envisages spending up to $2.798bn on upstream projects this year – 8% more than last year.

According to deputy prime minister Gulomjon Ibragimov, foreign investors will continue work this year on about 14 projects, costing some $16.3bn. Russia's Lukoil, South Korea's Kogas and EPC contractor GS E&C, China's China National Petroleum Corp, South Africa's Sasol and US Honeywell are all active in Uzbek energy sector, he said.

The Socar delegation then left for Turkmenistan to participate in an international gas congress in Turkmenbashi, a city on the Caspian Sea, formerly known as Krasnovodsk.
