TURKMEN GAS RISING
Finally, Turkmenistan is systematically increasing the volumes of contracts for the gas supply to China. And taking into account the growing demand for gas in China, the gas supplies from Turkmenistan to China will continue to grow.
So, the amount of those, willing to get more Turkmen gas, is increasing. But the volumes of Turkmen gas produced today will not be enough for all. It is necessary to develop new deposits and new investments to enter new routes.
The great demand for Turkmen gas and political support for its transportation projects and procurement in all directions can be a good incentive for foreign investors to pay attention to Turkmenistan. In this situation, the compensation for investors has been guaranteed.
Moreover, given the West's political interest in Turkmen gas, one can expect that those investing in Turkmen gas fields will receive certain preferences in the US and Europe. Thus, the major oil and gas developers will get great benefits as a result of doing business in Turkmenistan.
Taking into account the above-mentioned, it seems like it won't be Turkmenistan trying to attract investors, but the opposite - the investors will compete for the favor of the Turkmen leadership.
