Kazakhstan to expand gas output and gas pipeline network

Nov 20, 2001 01:00 AM

Kazakhstan's Energy Ministry has forecasted that the republic will emerge as the world's leading gas producer and exporter by 2015, as a result of which Kazakhstan intends to expand its gas pipeline export capacity. Kazakhstan will be able to export 29-34 bn cm of natural gas and 300,000 tons of liquefied gas by 2015.
The republic counts, among other things, on Russian gas pipeline capacities in light of the predicted gas deficit on the Russian market by 2015. The ministry does not exclude the possibility of laying gas pipelines to China, although the high costs of the project may lead to gas price hikes in Kazakhstan.

The Energy Ministry of Kazakhstan counts on the further expansion of local gas pipelines. Thus, a 2,200 km gas pipeline is expected to be laid from the Karachaganak deposit along the Aksai-Kostanai-Astana-Karaganda route, with construction costs estimated at $ 1.2 bn, an Ishim-Petropavlovsk-Astana-Karaganda gas pipeline (estimated at $ 520 mm) and a Shalkar-Leninsk-Kyzylorda-Shymkent gas pipeline ($ 850 mm).
