Turkmenistan: CIFAL at the 17th Turkmenistan International Oil & Gas Conference (November14–16, 2012).

The three-day exhibition and international conference brought together more than 100 companies from 20 different countries along with several international organizations.

At the official opening, Gautier Mangenot, head of CIFAL Turkmenistan, welcomed an official delegation at the booth led by Turkmenistan’s deputy prime minister of oil and gas and the deputy prime minister in charge of Turkmenistan’s Agency for the Management of Hydrocarbon Resources. It was an opportunity to tell the deputy prime ministers about the latest developments in CIFAL’s projects in Turkmenistan. In particular, the issue of a biaxially oriented polypropylene plant (BOPP) at the Turkmenbachy refinery (TKNPZ) was discussed. CIFAL facilitated the solution to resume this operation with Pt. Istana Karang Laut company (Indonesia).

During these three days, a number of discussions were held with representatives of Turkmen ministries and companies (the Turkmenbashi TKNPZ refinery, Turkmengas, Turkmenneft) and Western companies that included RWE Dea, Total, CGG, Saipem SA, MMHE and Rolls-Royce.

Visitors had the opportunity to learn about the line of industrial services specially developed by CIFAL in Turkmenistan and more particularly its role in supplying standardized and custom-made industrial equipment to the country’s oil and gas industries.
