LUKOIL commissioned a Gas Processing Complex at the Kandym fields cluster in Uzbekistan. The official opening ceremony was attended by the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Aleksander Novak, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the Republic of Uzbekistan Vladimir Tyurdenyov, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Korea to the Republic of Uzbekistan Kwon Yong Woo and the President of PJSC "LUKOIL" Vagit Alekperov.

The construction of the Kandym Gas Processing Complex was completed exactly two years since its start and eight months ahead of the schedule set by the President of Uzbekistan. Around ten thousand people were involved in the construction, while over two thousand permanent working places are created with the launch of the Complex. In total, around three thousand people are employed by LUKOIL in Uzbekistan with over 90% of them being citizens of the Republic.

The new Gas Processing Complex with the annual capacity of eight billion cubic meters of gas is designed to convert gas from the Kandym fields cluster to marketable gas, stable gas condensate, and marketable sulfur. There are 77 wells drilled and a gas gathering facility established at the Kandym field cluster. The commissioning of the Complex will allow to launch the pre-drilled wells at the field and achieve the projects' plateau production level within a short timeframe.

President Mirziyoyev said that "In Uzbekistan we highly appreciate and value strategic partnership and alliance type of the relationships with Russia built on trust, mutual support and benefit, and consideration of common interests. The agreements reached at our high-level meetings gave momentum and opened new possibilities for future action-oriented cooperation between our countries. Russia has been traditionally our largest trade and investment partner. Our key strategic long-standing and life-tested partner is LUKOIL, one of the leaders in the global energy sector."

Russia's Minister of Energy Mr Aleksander Novak read out the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin's welcome message to the participants of the Kandym Gas Processing Complex opening ceremony.

President Mr Putin said in his welcome message "The delivery of this sophisticated, technologically-intensive project was possible due to the coherent productive work of specialists from Russia and Uzbekistan, expert managerial decisions of LUKOIL's executives and its partners from neighbourly Uzbekistan. Built with the use of the advanced technological solutions and factoring in the most up-to-date health, safety and environmental protection requirements, the new Gas Processing Complex will become one of the largest in Central Asia."

Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev sent his congratulations with the launch of Kandym Gas Processing Complex.

Mr Dmitry Medvedev said in his welcome message "The launch of the Kandym GPC is another evidence of the ample opportunities for Russia-Uzbekistan partnership in the energy sector. I would like to highlight the substantial contribution of Russian investor – LUKOIL in the development of humanitarian projects in the Kashkadarya and Bukhara regions. These projects addressing children, among others, are of important significance for the relationships between our countries in the future."
