Kazakhstan offers its oil to "anyone who wants it"

Dec 03, 2008 01:00 AM

Kazakhstan offered its oil and gas to any country interested to buy it. Visiting chairman of the Kazakh parliament, Ural Mukhamedzhanov, made the offer in Hungary.
"All that is needed is for governments to agree when, what, and for how much we should deliver," he was quoted as saying.

He said Kazakhstan will produce up to 150 mm tons of crude oil and 70 bn cm of natural gas by 2015.
Earlier, he met with his Hungarian counterpart Katalin Szili. Szili expressed Hungary's intention to import oil and gas from Kazakhstan through the proposed Nabucco pipeline. The massive project is expected to reduce other European countries' dependency on Russian energy by bringing in gas from the Caspian Sea region through Turkey.
