The completed plant will create 70 new jobs and increase production of liquefied hydrocarbon gas. The plant is the latest evidence of Uzbekistan’s long-term strategy to diversify its energy mix and satisfy growing domestic and commercial energy demands.
The US$58.25 million, three-year project was implemented in accordance with a Presidential Decree and financed by funds from Uzbekneftegaz with a payback period of six years (2021-2026).
The successful completion of the project, marked in a recent ceremony attended by the Minister of Energy Alisher Sultanov, adds a fourth UPPBS to the plant, capable of processing up to 3 billion m3 of gas and producing 38 400 t of liquefied gas, annually.
Alisher Sultanov, Minister of Energy of Uzbekistan, said: “Work on the new and fourth Propane-Butane Mixture Production Unit at the Mubarek Gas Processing Plant began three years ago and despite the impact of the pandemic in recent months was completed on schedule. It is a great triumph over adversity.
“The ongoing commissioning of new industrial facilities in the oil and gas sector will increase efficiency in the sector and introduce energy saving technology and reduce our impact on the environment.”
