Jun 11, 2001 02:00 AM

Kairgeldy Kabyldin, Oil and Gas Transportation Vice President, stated that the Kazakh authorities are considering alternative routes to deliver Kazakhstani oil. Currently, specialists draft the Kazakhstan-Turkmenistan-Iran project and one for shipment of oil to northern ports of Iran.

The first route provides for the construction of a separate pipeline from Kazakhstan to Iran. Kabyldin mentioned the establishment of a multimodal network of oil pipelines from the Caspian to Black sea terminals to be among the promising and economically viable projects.
"For the time being, Kazakhstan produces 35 mm tpy of oil and the lack of essential transportation facilities may hamper development of the industry," said vice president. The total capacity of the Kazakh pipeline network currently stands at 15 mm tons with about 6 mm tons delivered via the Aqtau-Batumi route.

CPC will allow the production and exports be increased to 67 mm tons. Kabyldin also noted that the intergovernmental commission was set up to develop a strategy for transporting Kazakh oil to world markets.
