"There are no obstacles in Ukraine's entry into gas projects in Kazakhstan," Kazakh Deputy Minister of Oil and Gas Tolumbaev Berwick said in response to Trend correspondent's question.
According to Tolumbaev, Kazakhstan is open to any world country's investment, which will bring innovation and new technologies
Ukraine has repeatedly stated its desire to enter into the gas projects in Kazakhstan.
In turn Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said in an interview with Trend that these proposals are the matter of the future. "Not all the expanses of Kazakhstan have been studied. So, the available assets may appear," Azarov said during his first official visit to Astana last week.
According to Azarov, Ukraine has a significant intelligence and operational complex to extract oil and gas. Soviet gas production started from the Ukraine. The experience gained here in the 1960s-1970s became the basis to develop technologies for extracting gas throughout the Soviet Union. Young people in the USSR used to receive a special oil and gas education in Ukraine, and then move to Western Siberia and the North to assimilate the knowledge.
"Today we offer our new technology, our staff and our company to Kazakhstan, which along with the world leaders are willing to participate in the development of gas fields in Kazakhstan," Azarov said.
According to Azarov, the interaction of Ukrainian Scientific-Research Institute Naukaneftegaz with Kazakhstan Institute of Oil and Gas is now under discussion
