Uzbekistan Today (English) - - ACTUAL - Press Ser­vice Uzbekneftegaz JSC

Within the frame­work of the of­fi­cial visit by Pres­i­dent of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan Shavkat Mirziy­oyev to France, ne­go­ti­a­tions took place on Oc­to­ber 7 be­tween B. Ashrafkhanov, act­ing Chair­man of the Board of Uzbekneftegaz JSC, and Jean Bur­rus, Chair­man and CEO of Be­icip-Fran­lab.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, the two par­ties dis­cussed is­sues per­ti­nent to the fur­ther con­sol­i­da­tion of bi­lat­eral co­op­er­a­tion.

Within the frame­work of in­ter­ac­tion, the is­sue of sci­en­tific sup­port for ge­o­log­i­cal ex­plo­ration and study­ing the oil and gas po­ten­tial of in­vest­ment units is be­ing con­sid­ered with the pos­si­ble in­volve­ment of the French side as an in­de­pen­dent au­di­tor and ex­pert in a num­ber of ar­eas.

They in­clude the eval­u­a­tion of pro­pos­als of lead­ing oil and gas com­pa­nies for ex­plo­ration and rais­ing hy­dro­car­bon pro­duc­tion in the ter­ri­tory of the Repub­lic of Uzbek­istan, prepa­ra­tion of pro­pos­als for field de­vel­op­ment projects in Uzbek­istan.

Be­sides, im­por­tant ar­eas of joint ac­tiv­ity are: as­sess­ment of the prospects for the work of Uzbekneftegaz JSC in con­duct­ing ex­plo­ration and pro­duc­tion of hy­dro­car­bons abroad; prepa­ra­tion of re­ports on the re­serves of de­posits of Uzbek­istan, as well as a pack­age of in­for­ma­tion on in­vest­ment blocks of the repub­lic for trans­mis­sion to po­ten­tial for­eign in­vestors for re­search and oth­ers.

Pos­si­ble col­lab­o­ra­tion is un­der con­sid­er­a­tion with Be­icip Fran­lab in the creation of a Na­tional Oil and Gas Data­base (NDB), where the com­pany in­tends to par­tic­i­pate as an in­de­pen­dent con­trac­tor for the pro­vi­sion of data­base de­vel­op­ment and train­ing ser­vices, as well as a con­sul­tant for the com­mer­cial­iza­tion of this project.

One can add that NDB is a base through which you can save and pro­mote data on the nat­u­ral re­sources of the coun­try, as­so­ci­ated, in par­tic­u­lar, with ex­plo­ration and oil pro­duc­tion. The two main rea­sons why a coun­try cre­ates NDBs are to store ex­plo­ration and pro­duc­tion data and pro­mote in­vest­ment in the coun­try by us­ing them to re­duce the risks as­so­ci­ated with ex­plo­ration, pro­duc­tion and trans­porta­tion.

Be­icip Fran­lab is one of the lead­ing com­pa­nies that spe­cial­ize in sci­en­tific sup­port of ge­o­log­i­cal re­search, in­de­pen­dent re­serves as­sess­ment, con­sult­ing in the de­vel­op­ment of oil and gas fields, so­lu­tions for op­ti­miz­ing the pro­duc­tion and pro­cess­ing of hy­dro­car­bons, as well as the de­vel­op­ment of ap­pro­pri­ate soft­ware for ge­o­log­i­cal and geo­phys­i­cal re­search.

The com­pany op­er­ates in more than 100 coun­tries and has 9 in­ter­na­tional di­vi­sions in Moscow, Paris, Kuala Lumpur, Rio de Janeiro, Hous­ton, Vil­la­her­mosa, Abu Dhabi and other cities.
