LUKOIL JSC, Russia's second largest oil company, has embarked on the construction of a large Kandym gas treatment plant in the south-west of Uzbekistan.
This will turn out to be one of the biggest objects of such a kind in Central Asia, the press office told Construction.ru on Tuesday. Over 2,000 permanent jobs are to be created at the facility.
According to the project, the plant’s capacity amounts to 8.1bln m3 of processed gas a year. The number of workers at its construction site will be as many as 7,000.
370 km of gas pipelines are also planned to be constructed there, as well as 160 km of roads, gathering facilities for natural gas from 114 exploitation wells, 11 cluster pads and 4 gathering stations.
It should be remembered that the contract for the gas treatment plant construction in Uzbekistan was signed in February 2016 by LUKOIL and a group of companies headed by the South Korean Hyundai.
