The Kara Kum desert. We still consider these places as desert, but the landscape is?
The Kara Kum desert. We still consider these places as desert, but the landscape is rapidly changing. Following the Achaksk deposits, richest deposits of gas - up to 250 billion cubic meters - have been discovered in Naip. Only a year has passed since the day when bore master Bolikhanov made the first bore-hole. During this time much has been done to master the deposits. Many new Wells have been bored. A gas pipe-line Naip-Middle Asia-Center is under construction. In difficult desert conditions the builders are laying up to 12 kilometers of pipe-line a month, almost double the plan. Soon the gas from Naip will bring heat to cities, will burn in furnaces of electro-stations and will become valuable raw material for the chemical industry.
