Jereh Group in Yantai, Shandong province delivered 45 sets of oil industry equipment to Uzbekneftegaz, a state-owned holding company of Uzbekistan’s oil and gas industry, on May 15 as part of a 10 million yuan ($1.57 million) order.
The remaining 30 sets are expected to be delivered before August. The equipment will help with Uzbekistan’s oil and gas exploitation and improve the company’s work efficiency.
The equipment has six varieties, including different sizes, different structures, and different pressure levels. All of them are customized based on the requirements of the client and the working condition in Uzbekistan.
The largest one is five meters high and three meters wide, with operable pressure ranges from 3,000 psi to 10,000 psi. It is capable of working in temperatures between 46 degrees Celsius below zero and 121 degrees.
Uzbekistan, located in the heartland of Central Asia, has rich natural resources and the oil and gas industry is one of the countries four economic pillars.
Statistics provided by British Petroleum show that Uzbekistan’s explored oil reserve reaches 100 million tons and gas reserve reaches 1.68 trillion cubic meters. Therefore, the government of Uzbekistan has attached great importance to oil and gas exploitation.
Jereh Group has been in the Uzbekistan market since 2009 and has developed it into one of its major overseas investments. So far, it has exported a large volume of homemade equipment such as CNG filling equipment, compressors, coiled tubing equipment, and nitrogen-making vehicles to Uzbekistan companies.
