The head of Turkmenistan ordered to extinguish the “Gates of Hell” gas crater

President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov ordered to extinguish a gas crater in the Karakum desert, RIA Novosti reported.

He added that the gas crater negatively affects the environment and the health of people living nearby.

It is noted that the head of state gave a corresponding order to Deputy Prime Minister Shakhym Abrakhmanov, who is in charge of the oil and gas complex.
