Korpedje: First well site visit during pre-school training...

On the way to Korpedje... pretty bad road...
Arrive at well site: Korpedje 252 pretty cool view at night.
Man at work...
Generators...so powerful it can supply power for a small village
First glimpse of 'HELL'... an abandoned burning well
Me, being really close to 'HELL'
Camels chasing our truck...
The ANALOGUE Fuel Pump Meter...Fuel is cheaper than water...
Yup... getting excited bout the first ever visit to a well site. Korpedje oil field: located 200km from my work base, Balkanabad; 400km from the Iran border. Interesting place...sand dunes, unpave/aged asphalt roads, camels and pretty hot weather. It is nickname 'HELL' as there is a burning well which was abandoned 2 years ago. Pretty much this is like rolling flames and bubbling lake of oil and water mixture. I thing here in Turkmenistan, fuel (petrol/diesel) is cheaper than mineral water . 1USD can get you 80 litres of fuel whereas 1USD can only get you 5 litres of mineral water...cool...
