The complex is being developed by Uz - Kor Gas Chemical JV which is a joint venture between the national gas company Uzbekneftegaz and a Korean consortium (consisting of Kogas, Honam Petrochemical and STX Energy). Funding of the construction of the complex is on a joint basis assisted by $2.54 billion in Asian, European and Uzbek bank loans.
The Surgil, Vostochny Berdakh-Uchsay and Severny Berdakh fields will serve as the resource base for the complex. The largest of them – Surgil – contains about 120 bcm of gas.
The whole project involves the development of three distinct yet interrelated components:
Drilling of gas production wells and the construction and expansion of associated production infrastructure for the Surgil, North and East Berdakh Fields, including a Complex Gas Treatment Unit (CGTU) at the Surgil Field (the “Surgil CGTU”) and another CGTU shared between the North and East Berdakh Fields (the “East Berdakh CGTU”).
