Etymology

Prior to 1971 the settlement was known as Şehitli. The word şehit in Turkmen means "martyr" or "someone who dies an untimely death", but the reference is obscure. The word şatlyk, on the other hand, means "joy, happiness".[2][3]

Economy

Şatlyk's main industry is natural gas extraction from the Shatlyk Gas Field. The Shatlyk compressor station is nearby.
