Prime Minister Serik Akhmetov ordered the acceleration of construction of the Beyneu - Bozoi gas pipeline, which will supply gas to the southern regions of the country.

"In accordance with instructions from the President, the first section of the pipeline needs to be commissioned this year. All preparatory procedures on the second section of the Beineu-Bozoi are to be completed within the current year. Construction will start not in 2014, but in 2013. Once again I am shifting focus to this issue", Akhmetov said.

According to the Prime Minister, the primary goal in the gas sector is a stable and uninterrupted supply of gas in Kazakhstan.

"We know that our southern regions are dependent on gas from elsewhere. I think that the construction of Bozoi-Shymkent will be conducive to bringing in gas, which is very important to consumers," he said.

Akhmetov also instructed the Ministry of Oil and Gas to develop and approve a general plan of gasification and increase attention towards issues of rural gas supply during this year.
