Balkangeofizika enterprise of the Turkmengeologiya State Corporation conducts complex geophysical survey on oil and gas fields of the Balkan velayat in the western Turkmenistan using modern methods.
Since the beginning of this year, geophysicists have performed geophysical survey using 3D seismic surveying on 408 square kilometer area and 2D seismic surveying on 940.5 linear kilometer area. These methods made it possible to find and develop huge hydrocarbon reserves.
Geologists have gained extensive experience in prospecting and seismic studies in the oil and gas fields of Gumdag, Indarlan, Kelkar, Jebel, Goturdepe and Uzynada.
The active phase of work is currently concentrated in the Balkan velayat on the prospective areas of Gamyshlyja, Garadashly, Azatlyk, and Aytzhan. The enterprise uses modern technologies to search for hydrocarbons, including several types of seismic surveying technologies (2D and 3D).
The enterprise plans to start operating in the future a new 4D seismic surveying technology, which can be effectively used to track the movement of liquids in an underground reservoir. 4D will help to clarify areas saturated with oil.
