The International Roadshow "Oil and Gas of Turkmenistan 2020" held in Dubai (UAE) has become one of the major and landmark events dedicated to the 25th anniversary of permanent neutrality of our country. The forum embodied the principles of economic diplomacy of the Turkmen state in the world arena and the readiness for multilateral equal dialogue in such a vital area as global energy security.
The Turkmen leader puts on the agenda the development of fundamentally new models designed to turn the global energy dialogue into a driving force of global development on the basis of a balance of interests of all its participants, responsible and careful treatment of natural resources, ecology, taking into account the broad public demand focused on the fair distribution of benefits.
All this was discussed at the representative event in Dubai, which gathered more than 300 high-ranking delegates from 113 leading companies, representing 42 countries. The Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India transnational gas pipeline project and the investment potential of the Turkmen hydrocarbon sector based on the stable economic and political situation in the country and the relevant legislative framework were among the main topics discussed by experts.
The representatives of the leading international oil and gas companies expressed their interest in mutually beneficial cooperation in the oil and gas complex of the country and participation in the TAPI transnational gas pipeline project.
Among the promising areas of cooperation, considered at the Dubai International Roadshow were the attraction of investments into development of hard-to-develop fields, gas chemical projects, implementation of the next stage of industrial development of the giant Galkynysh field to supply natural gas to the transnational TAPI gas pipeline.
The round table "TAPI – the Gas Pipeline for Peace and Cooperation" and the seminar on legal and tax aspects became the agenda of the talks between the heads of the oil and gas industry of Turkmenistan and top managers of a number of world-renowned companies.
The presentations have become an important contribution to the formation of the modern investment image of the country. As a responsible and reliable producer and supplier of energy resources, Turkmenistan is ready for close cooperation with the interested states of the world, international organizations and financial institutions in order to develop coherent, transparent approaches.
In this regard, the construction of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India gas pipeline is a real investment project, a fact of the growing attractiveness of which are the legislative guarantees, the state support and personal control over the TAPI construction by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov.
