Hyundai Engineering has begun construction on the $2.66bn Kandym gas processing plant in Uzbekistan.

The South Korean company obtained orders for the front end engineering design (FEED) services for the Kandym gas field development in 2011, and received the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for Kandym gas processing plant in February 2015 from LUOC —a joint venture between Russia's Lukoil and Uzbekistan's state-run oil and gas company UNG.

The processing plant is being constructed in the Kandym gas field, which is about 520km southwest from Uzbekistan's capital city Tashkent. When completed, the facility will have an annual production capacity of 8.2bn cubic metres, or 6.35m tonnes, of natural gas.

The Hyundai Engineering's stake of the project is $2.01bn and construction work is expected to be complete in the first half of 2019.
