UZBEKISTAN

(in Former Soviet Union)

CAPITAL: TASHKENT

POPULATION: 28 mm

AREA (on): 447,400 km2

OIL PEAK: 1998

SUPPLY

Uzbekistan has 5 remote oil and gas bearing regions. Oil production peaked in 1998 and is now in long term decline although foreign investment and new technology is helping maintain output for a period.

Uzbekistan is a gas-prone country with gas mostly produced from the Amu Darya basin in the southwest, near the border with Afghanistan and Turkmenistan, and the Fergana Valley in the southeast.

New investment in exploration and development and in infrastructure, especially in long distance pipeline routes, should allow the country to increase gas output through much of the next decade after 2010 although economic problems in the country remain.

 

DEMAND

Uzbekistani oil consumption is flat or declining. Exports have ceased.

The country has relatively high gas consumption driven by its large indigenous supplies and some growth is forecast here. Exports of gas to Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan have grown but there is expected to be little room for gas exports in the medium term.
