Garabogazkarbamid - Major Player in Turkmen Gas Chemical Industry

Garabogazkarbamid, the large urea and ammonia plant commissioned in September 2018 in the city of Garabogaz of the Turkmenbashi district of the Balkan province, is one of the modern industrial facilities in gas-rich Turkmenistan. 

Playing an important role in strengthening the gas chemical industry of the country, which is one of the priority areas of the national economy, the Garabogazkarbamid plant's annual production capacity is 1 million 155 thousand tons of urea and 660 thousand tons of synthetic ammonia.

The growth of the agro-industrial complex is strongly associated with the sufficient supply of various types of fertilizers. One of the important aspects is the targeted use of hydrocarbon and sulfur-hydrogen raw materials using the latest technologies.

Urea is one of the mineral fertilizers that is in high demand in agriculture. Most of the products of the Garabogazkarbamid factory are exported to foreign countries. From the first days of commissioning a large complex of the gas chemical industry, the products of the plant has been in great demand in foreign markets.

Natural gas is the main raw material of the plant. The plant employs 1000 people and processes about 1 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year.
