President of LUKOIL Vagit Alekperov and the Prime Minister of Uzbekistan Abdulla Aripov participated in the official launch of new facilities at the Gissar cluster of fields in Uzbekistan, on Sept 23.
Commissioning of the new operational facilities at the South-West Gissar project, including a gas treatment plant with the nominal capacity of 4.4 billion cubic meters a year, a gas pre-treatment unit and six gas gathering stations, made it possible to bring gas production at Gissar cluster of fields up to the planned level of 5 billion cubic meters a year.
More than half of total volumes of natural gas, produced at the company's foreign projects, are recovered in Uzbekistan. As of early September, 2017, the cumulative production at projects, managed by LUKOIL in the country, reached 45 billion cubic meters. The company is the largest foreign investor in the Republic of Uzbekistan.
