Local Taliban government authorities in the Bala Murghab district of Badghis province in northeastern Afghanistan said that a new natural gas reserve has been discovered.

This mine is situated in the Tangi-Bezbai area of Bala Murghab district, according to a report published on Wednesday night, October 26, by Bakhtar news agency, which cited the Taliban Head of Mines and Petroleum in Badghis province.

A team of engineers from the Taliban Ministry of Mines and Petroleum is also reported to have visited the province to do a preliminary assessment. 

The engineers have confirmed the discovery of a new gas deposit, according to Shamsuddin Nizami, the Head of Mines and Petroleum in the Badghis province.

This comes as the leadership of the Taliban mines ministry and Turkmen authorities previously signed an agreement to import thousands of tons of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) from Turkmenistan.

According to the ministry, a meeting with the Afghanistan National Standards Authority, Afghanistan Oil and Gas Corporation, and the economic advisor to the Taliban prime minister reportedly covered the import of LPG, also known as cylinder gas, from Turkmenistan.

The ministry previously declared in a statement that they had reached an agreement to expand the country’s gas imports after many collaborative discussions with Turkmenistan’s authorities. As a result, the ports of Hayratan, Aqina, and Turghandi will be used to import thousands of tons of cylinder gas.
