Turkmenistan’s national oil company Türkmennebit State Concern will conclude an additional agreement to the contract with the Russian Tatneft PJSC for servicing hundreds of oil wells.
The Resolution authorizing the conclusion of the agreement was signed by President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov on Wednesday.
The document was signed with the aim of further developing the oil-gas complex of Turkmenistan, and increasing the productivity of oil wells through the introduction of modern technologies and special equipment into production, the country's official media reported on Wednesday.
In summer of 2010, Türkmennebit, in accordance with the Presidential Resolution dated July 30, 2010 concluded a contract with the Tatneft company, based in Russia’s Tatarstan Republic, on the provision of services to increase the production rate of oil wells at the Goturdepe hydrocarbon field.
