On June 18, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov made a holiday trip to the Lebap velayat, the state information agency TDH reports .
A day earlier, the head of state visited the Mary velayat, where he inspected the fields, visited the mosque and solemnly opened the building for holding sadak. From Mary, the president flew to Turkmenabat, at the airport where he was greeted with songs and dances. It should be noted that the visit to this region followed exactly the same scenario as in Mary.
So, at the airport, the khyakim of the Lebap velayat , Shokhrat Amangeldiev , reported that the tenants of the Darganatyn etrap had fulfilled the grain harvesting plan.
From the airport, the head of state went to the daikhan association "Watan" in the Chardzhev etrap of the velayat, where he talked with the tenant farmer Azat Jorayev . He said that he has been working on a rental system for 16 years, planted high-quality wheat on an area of 10 hectares and expects to receive 50 centners of grain per hectare. The villager in Mary, with whom the president spoke the day before, has been working in the field for 15 years and expects to receive 40-45 centners of grain per hectare.
Serdar Berdimuhamedov assured the villager that he would always control issues related to improving the working conditions of farmers. The man asked the president to bless the beginning of the braid , which he did. An exhibition of agricultural products and bakery products was also arranged for the president.
From the fields, the President took a helicopter to the site of the grand opening of the gas gathering station at the Gadyn field in the Farap etrap, where he was again greeted with songs and dances.
At the station, Chen Huailong , director general of the branch of the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) in Turkmenistan , reported on the gas pipeline system and the average annual capacity of the gas gathering station. The new enterprise, which will employ 200 people, will be able to receive 5.5 million cubic meters of natural gas per day from various fields in Turkmenistan and send it to China.
Then a meeting was held in honor of the opening of the station, at which the President and Ambassador of China to Turkmenistan Qian Naicheng spoke . It was reported that since 2009, Turkmenistan has supplied China with 340 billion cubic meters of natural gas, and with the development of the second stage of the Galkynysh gas field, the pace of laying the fourth branch of the Turkmenistan-China gas pipeline is accelerating.
After the head of state launched the station, A. Akmammedov , a specialist of the Türkmengaz State Concern, asked him through a teleconference to give his blessing for the commissioning of the Uchaji-Zerger gas pipeline, which will provide gas to a gas turbine power plant with a capacity of 432 MW in Chardzhev etrap and the population of Lebap velayat.
Serdar Berdimuhamedov naturally gave his blessing.
Recall that in the summer of 2021, CNPC won a tender for the design and turnkey construction of surface facilities at six gas fields in the western section of the Bagtyyarlyk contract area.
Within the framework of the project, six fields will be put into operation - Gadyn , North Gadyn, Iljik, East Iljik, Kishtuvan and West Kishtuvan. 22 wells, four gas collection stations , pipelines, engineering and technical support networks, including electricity and water supply, and other industrial infrastructure facilities will be built. Their total design capacity will be 1.8 billion cubic meters of gas per year.
