In 2006, Gazprom and Uzbekneftegaz inked the Agreement on the basic principles of geological exploration at investment blocks in the Ustyurt region of Uzbekistan. In 2017, the companies signed the Agreement of Strategic Cooperation.

Shakhpakhty is a gas and condensate field discovered in 1962 in the southeastern part of the Ustyurt plateau in the Kungradsky District (Republic of Karakalpakstan, Uzbekistan). Workover and follow-up development of the Shakhpakhty field is carried out under the 15-year Production Sharing Agreement signed in 2004.
