April 17, 2014

CNPC is going to begin oil production at the Mingbulak deposit in Uzbekistan’s Namangan Region. By summer, CNPC will finish drilling at a licensed block where hydrocarbons were found. Infrastructure works will begin at the end of 2014 and oil production will begin in the first half of 2015, said a source familiar with the situation. CNPC and the national holding company Uzbekneftegaz signed an agreement on cooperation and joint development of Mingbulak in October 2011.
