July 24, 2022
The Ministry of Industry and Trade; Deputy PM for Economic Affairs’ Senior Adviser; Afghanistan National Standard Authority (ANSA); and Afghanistan Oil and Gas Corporation (AOGC) held a joint meeting about increasing the import of liquefied gas from Turkmenistan and confirmed the commitments of the importing companies after comprehensive discussions.
Based on the contract of tens of thousands of tons of liquefied gas with Turkmenistan, the liquefied gas importing companies will soon import thousands of tons of gas to the country that has already arrived at the ports of Afghanistan. With the importation of this level of gas, the prices of liquid gas in the markets of Afghanistan will decrease significantly.
It is worth mentioning that tens of thousands of tons of more liquefied gas will also arrive at the country's ports soon.
