Bagadzha is a gas condensate field in the Lebap velayat of Turkmenistan. The Bagadzhin gas processing complex with a total cost of $52.35 million was put into operation in 2006. The second stage of the plant started operating in 2011. The complex was built by the Canadian company Thermo Design Engineering ltd. Then it was reported that liquefied gas from here would be exported - through the terminal in the city of Seydi, and gas condensate - to the Seydi oil refinery, where light oil products, which are in high demand on world markets, will be produced from it. In addition, from Bagadzhi "blue fuel" will be supplied to the consumer network of the Amudarya valley - for production needs and the population of Lebap.
