GATE WAY TO HELL

Talking of natural gas, here’s plenty for sure. Many visitors come see ‘the gateway to hell’, a huge burning gas crater in the heart of turkmenistan’s karakum desert. The fiery pit was result of a simple miscalculation of soviet scientists in 1971 after their boring equipment suddenly drilled through into an underground cavern and a deep sinkhole formed. Fearing that the crater would emit poisonous gases, the scientists took the decision to set it alight, thinking that would burn out quickly. But the flames have not gone out in more than 40 years, in a potent symbol of the vast gas reserves of Turkmenistan, which are believed to be the fourth in the world.
