Turkmenistan Insurance – cover for expatriate oil and gas workers
21 December 2010
Specialist Turkmenistan insurance is strongly advised for those planning to work in the country’s fast developing oil and gas industries.
Poor medical facilities, hazardous roads and potential earthquakes are among the risks that oil and gas workers in Turkmenistan may be faced with – in addition to the normal risks associated with hazardous work in remote locations.
Turkmenistan has the world's fourth-largest reserves of natural gas and substantial oil resources. It shares borders with Afghanistan and Iran to the south and with Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan to the north. Although it has a coastline with the Caspian Sea, the country is 80% desert and is one of the most arid places on earth.
Medical evac and repatriation insurance
By western standards, medical care is extremely poor in Turkmenistan. Insurance for anyone travelling or working here should include emergency medical evacuation insurance and repatriation cover as well as comprehensive international health cover.
