Kazakhstan expects the second phase of Kashagan field development to complete in 2018-2019, Kazakh vice-minister of oil and gas Lyazzat Kiinov said at the 20th Congress of the World Petroleum Council in Doha today.
"We think that we will complete the second phase of the Kashagan field development in 2018-2019," he said. "However, the government guarantees that the contractors of the consortium will operate within the laws that exist in Kazakhstan."
