Korea Gas (Kogas) was slated to begin commercial production at its joint venture gas field and petrochemical complex in Uzbekistan in October, with part of the gas used for feedstock production. The offshore Surgil gas field holds an estimated 130 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) equivalent. The field project is an equal venture of Uzbekneftegaz and a South Korean consortium comprising Kogas, Lotte Chemical, and GS E&R. The project will produce an estimated 3.58 MTPA of LNG equivalent, or 4.5 billion m3/yr of natural gas.
