Uzbekistan Fuel

The capital city Tashkent is the largest city in Central Asia and today Uzbekistan is rich in natural resources, including oil, gas, gold and uranium. In 2010, Uzbekistan was the largest producer of gas in Central Asia and ranked 14th worldwide.
Uzbekistan has five oil and gas bearing regions with proven industrial reserves namely the Ustyurt, Bukhara‐Khiva, Ghissar, Surkhandarya and Ferghana. Currently there are a total of 202 hydrocarbon sites in the country and the BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2011 lists proven reserves as 0.6 billion barrels of oil and 1.6 trillion cubic metres of natural gas. Uzbekistan is a sizable exporter of natural gas and the US State Department estimates that Uzbekistan exported 15.2 billion cubic metres of natural gas in 2009 and, as a share of total world natural gas production, Uzbekistan represented some 2% at the end of 2009. The US State Department estimates that natural gas exports are now the country's dominant source of foreign currency earnings (surpassing the role of the cotton industry). The gas pipeline infrastructure is well developed with some 13,000 km of gas pipelines at present. Gas is exported to Russia and Europe through the Bukhara‐Urals and Asia‐ Centre trunklines and, with the completion of the Central Asia ‐ China gas pipeline, gas exports eastwards will commence. Although Uzbekistan is primarily a gas producer, it also produces reasonable quantities of oil ‐ some 87,000 barrels per day, in 2010. Despite its significant existing oil and gas production, there are still large areas of Uzbekistan relatively underexplored, and significant existing deposits still available for investment and further co‐operation.

Fuel Transportation

The Fuel distribution infrastructure is divided into three major segments; Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary. Collectively these systems employ tankers, barges, rail cars, tank trucks, thousands of miles of pipeline, and hundreds of storage terminals, and of course the refineries. By petroleum industry definition the Primary Distribution System includes oil gathering at the well head, transport to gathering tanks, crude oil storage, and refinery processing. The secondary system is downstream of the refinery and includes finished product pipelines and destination terminals. Product is moved to refinery finished product tankage for distribution into the product transportation network. This includes transfer to tanks for shipment into pipelines and for many refineries to tankage for loading waterborne cargoes (i.e. tankers or barges). The refined products pipeline system consists of approximately 72,000 miles of line and carries well over half of the gasoline to market. Product moved by pipeline, ship or barge is transported to bulk storage finished product terminals. A finished product terminal may consist of just a few small tanks storing perhaps 50,000 barrels or numerous tanks, both large and small, storing a combined total of millions of barrels of finished
product. It may in some cases be owned by an individual petroleum company, jointly operated by two or more companies, or it may be independently owned by a company whose sole purpose is the storage and outloading of their customers' products. Some terminals may store and distribute only gasoline or diesel. Larger terminals typically handle a full range of light products. Terminals may receive product by either pipeline, barge, ship, or rail or some combination
thereof. In addition, some terminals can receive product via transport truck. Terminals serving the
retail markets have one or more transport truck loading racks. There are hundreds of gasoline distribution terminals across the United States. From the finished product terminal, product is then distributed by transport tank truck to the retail outlets and, in some cases, to bulk plants. A small amount of product is also moved by rail.
