The energy industry in Turkmenistan
Turkmenistan’s key natural resources include natural gas, petroleum, salt and sulfur and the country is also home to some of the world’s largest natural gas reserves. The Oil industry is relatively small, operating out of two oil refineries, the Seidi and Turkmenbashi refineries and places the country as the 33rd largest oil producer in the world. The country is also one of the countries that the Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline runs through. The 1814km pipeline, currently under construction, will transport natural gas from the Galkynysh Gas Field in Turkmenistan through Afghanistan into Pakistan and then to India.
