LUKOIL STARTS KANDYM
LUKOIL started the construction of Kandym Gas Processing Complex (KGPC) – a key production facility in development of the Kandym group of gas condensate fields located in the Bukhara Province in the south-west of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
The ceremony for laying the foundation stone was attended by Prime Minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, President of PJSC LUKOIL Vagit Alekperov and representatives of local authorities and contractors.

Around 7,000 people will be involved in the construction of the complex and infrastructure facilities.
"The beginning of construction of the Kandym Gas Processing Complex marks a new stage in the development of gas resources in Uzbekistan. The complex will be one of the largest in Central Asia, and its operation will enable the creation of more than two thousand full-time employment positions," noted Prime Minister of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
"The Kandym Gas Processing Complex will involve the best experts and cutting edge process solutions while ensuring compliance with the highest health, safety and environment standards. This is the Company's largest investment project in Uzbekistan," said Vagit Alekperov, President of PJSC LUKOIL.
