Gazojak (Turkmen: Gazojak) is a city in Darganata District, Lebap Province, Turkmenistan.[1] It is a border crossing to Uzbekistan, across from the Pitnyak rail customs point and the Druzhba motor road customs point on the Uzbek side.[2]

Etymology

The city's economy revolves around the natural gas industry, hence the name gaz ojak, meaning "gas furnace", which it received in 1967. Prior to that the settlement was called Jürränyň oýy, "Jürrä's Thought", Jürrä being a masculine name.[3]
