The Republic of Kazakhstan (Kazakhstan) lies in northern Central Asia and is bordered by the Russian Federation (Russia) to the north, China to the east, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan to the south, and the Caspian Sea and Turkmenistan to the west. Kazakhstan’s land area is 2 717 300 square kilometres (km2) with almost 1 894 km of coastline on the Caspian Sea. The capital is Nur-Sultan (previously called Astana) and the country is home to 18.7 million people (www.stat.gov.kz).
Until 2015, Kazakhstan was among the world’s top ten fastest-growing economies, mainly owing to development of its rich oil, gas and coal resources and its export-oriented policies. The country is the largest oil producer in Central Asia, with the 12th-highest proven crude oil reserves in the world. Its gross domestic product (GDP) per capita has risen six-fold since 2002 (https://www.worldbank.org/en/country/kazakhstan/overview#3), and in 2019 its real GDP grew 4.5% as a result of higher consumer spending and mining-related investments (https://www.worldbank.org/en/country/kazakhstan/overview#3). Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, however, Kazakhstan’s GDP could contract 3% in 2020 according to World Bank estimates (https://www.worldbank.org/en/country/kazakhstan/overview#3).
Kazakhstan produced 91.9 million tonnes (Mt) of crude oil in 2018 (including gas condensate) with increased production at its Kashagan field (https://www.kazenergy.com/upload/document/energy-report/NationalReport19_en.pdf). Kashagan, the fifth-largest reserve in the world, is expected to play a major role in Kazakhstan’s future oil production, with projected production of 450 thousand barrels per day (kb/d) by 2025 and 955 kb/d by 2040.
Progress has been achieved in Kazakhstan’s gas network development: in 2016 three lines of the transnational Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kazakhstan-China gas pipeline were completed, increasing transit gas volumes from 30 billion cubic metres per year (bcm/y) to 55 bcm/y, and the Beineu-Bozoi-Shymkent pipeline connecting the western producing region with the densely populated south also became operational in 2016 (http://energo.gov.kz/index.php?id=49).
Tratos is very pleased to contribute toward achieving Goal 7 of the UN Global Goals to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, Goal 13: Climate Action, and Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.
