Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov discussed with Tatsuya Watanabe, President of Kawasaki energy system and industrial developments, reached agreements and a number of promising projects. The meeting took place on Wednesday, December 11.
The Kawasaki Japanese Company intends to take part in the construction of the second Natural Gas-to-Gasoline Plant (Gas to Gasoline – GTG) in Turkmenistan.
The first successful project, implemented by the “Turkmengaz” State Concern, a consortium of Japanese Kawasaki and Turkish Rönesans in Ovadandepe, exceeded all expectations and interested world energy importers. Today, European countries place orders for natural gasoline A-92, which meets the requirements of Euro-5.
The annual capacity of 600 thousand tons of gasoline is planned to increase due to the construction of the second similar complex. Mr.Berdimuhamedov has already discussed this issue with Japanese entrepreneurs during his visit to Tokyo in October. At the same time, a Memorandum was signed between the “Turkmengaz” State Concern and the group of Kawasaki and Sojitz companies.
Kawasaki is one of the world’s largest industrial concerns. It can attract Japanese investments for the construction of such gas-chemical plant, as well as to implement high-tech production with the involvement of the world’s leading manufacturers.
In its turn, Turkmenistan, being the fourth world power in terms of natural gas reserves, can load both gas chemical complexes to the maximum and provide uninterrupted supplies of high-quality natural gasoline to the world market.
