Today, the conservation and sustainable management of natural resources are among the critical global issues. One of the major challenges facing the international community is environmental management in hydrocarbon exploration and production.
Oil- and gas-rich Turkmenistan is actively developing the rich hydrocarbon deposits, including those located in the Caspian Sea, taking a principled and responsible position: to regulate economic activities for any hydrocarbon project, from production to the gas and petrochemical industry, with strict environmental criteria and environmental safety requirements. Seeking to enhance the innovative and technological potential of oil and gas exploration, the Government of Turkmenistan is intensifying partnerships with the well-known foreign companies. The Turkmen state has built the necessary economic and legal frameworks for foreign businesses to operate in an enabling investment environment.
