Country Analysis Brief Overview
- Lack of sufficient foreign investment, geographical challenges, inadequate export pipeline infrastructure, and a rigid economic structure are factors that have deterred the country from becoming a major hydrocarbon exporter.
- Oil production from Turkmenistan has increased gradually since 2007 and is highly dependent on new investment and technological capacity to bring new fields online as well as resolving Caspian Sea maritime boundary disputes. The country remains a small net oil exporter.
- Turkmenistan has large amounts of natural gas reserves, but is currently constrained by the lack of available natural gas transportation infrastructure.
