By 2025, oil production in Kazakhstan will be 104 million tonnes per year. This was stated by Minister of Energy Kanat Bozumbayev during the meeting with the Public Council on the issues of fuel-and-energy complex and ecology.
Over the five months of this year, the country’s production reached 37.7 million tonnes, showing an increase of 6% compared with the same period in 2016. This year, according to our forecasts, production is expected to be at above 87 million tonnes, and we are now ahead of the curve, – Kanat Bozumbaev said.
The Minister noted that oil production growth is achieved due to three large deposits: Kashagan, Karachaganak, and Tengiz.
