CLEAN DEVELOPMENT MECHANISM PROJECTS

20. Construction of Gissarak Small Hydropower Plant

Project Description, Type and Schedule

Objective

Construction of SHPP on existing irrigation facilities of the Republic of Uzbekistan will allow to solve the complex problem of energy supply and irrigation in rural areas of the country, as well as to increase the living standards of local population.
Main aims of current CDM project are:

  • reduction of emission of GHG and toxic substances, produced as the result of burning of fossil fuel at thermal power plants;
  • reduction of losses during the supply of electricity;
  • improved energy supply of rural areas;
  • employment of local population for the purpose of constructing and operating SHPP.

Description

Gissarak waterworks facility was built in 1980s and was designed for 1 year regulation of irrigation of lower acres.
As a result of considerable changes in the composition of cultivated crops in Uzbekistan, outflows of Gissarak waterworks facility have changed compared to the projected outflows.
Gissarak SHPP is to generate electricity using the potential of existing irrigation outflows. Estimated average long-term amount of generated power is 80.9 mln. KWh. Planned installed capacity of Gissarak SHPP is 45 MW.

Location

Gissarak SHPP is to be constructed within the territory of existing facilities of Gissarak water reservoir in Kashkadarya region of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

CLEAN DEVELOPMENT MECHANISM PROJECTS
21. Utilization of associated gas from oil wells Umid, Kruk, Western Kruk, Sarikum, Yangi Darbaza.

Project Description, Type and Schedule

Objective

The objective of the project is elimination of emissions to the atmosphere of middle and low pressure associated gases from oil wells Umid, Kruk, Western Kruk, Sarikum, Yangi Darbaza and reduction of GHG emissions.

Description

Since 2001 in Uzbekistan the annual production of liquid hydrocarbons (oil and condensate) has decreased to certain extent. To meet the demand for crude oil of the national economy, ‘Uzbekneftegaz’ has to develop small fields, containing gas fringes with difficult access to the resources. The development of these fields and consequent reduction of pressure leads to the increased amount of associated gases (associated oil gases from the gas caps).
Current technology for oil collection and treatment in small fields in Uzbekistan entails flaring these associated gas on site which results in environmental pollution.
In Uzbekistan there is no legislation prohibiting flaring of the low-pressure gases which appear as the result of preparation of oil and condensate at oil-gas-condensate fields.
To prevent negative consequences, associated gases (a valuable raw product) should be captured and utilized. To properly utilize associated gases, it is necessary to introduce a closed system for oil treatment that will allow to accumulate passive low-pressure gases (0.4-2.0 MPa) at small fields and supply them to the complex gas treatment plants (CGTP) of nearby fields.
