Country Analysis Brief Overview
- Uzbekistan has abundant oil and natural gas reserves. However, several factors such as lack of sufficient foreign investment and inadequate transportation infrastructure have deterred the country from becoming a major energy exporter.
- Oil production from Uzbekistan has declined since 2003 due to lack of new investment and technological capacity to bring new oilfields online as well as a greater interest in the larger gas potential of the region by energy companies.
- Uzbekistan contains substantial natural gas reserves but is currently constrained by the lack of available foreign investment and natural gas export pipeline infrastructure. Uzbekistan also serves as a transit country for gas from Turkmenistan to Russia and China.
