US expects no increase in Kazakhstan’s oil production

Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 7

By Elena Kosolapova - Trend:

The oil production in Kazakhstan in 2015-2016 will remain at 1.72 million barrels per day like in 2014, said the short-term energy outlook of the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) for October.

The daily oil production in this country reached 1.76 barrels in Q1 2015, 1.71 million barrels - in Q2 and 1.7 million barrels in Q3, according to the EIA estimations.

EIA forecasts that the oil production in Kazakhstan will be 1.7 million barrels per day in Q4 2015.

This is while the maximum oil production volume in Kazakhstan in 2016 is expected in Q4 - 1.74 million barrels per day, according to the Energy Information Administration.

Moreover, the oil production in this country is expected to reach 1.7 million barrels per day in Q1 2016 and 1.71 million barrels per day in Q2 and Q3 each, according to the EIA forecast.

BP's statistical review indicates that Kazakhstan's proven oil reserves as of early 2015 stood at 30 billion barrels.

Kazakhstan's largest oil fields are Tengiz, Karachaganak and Kashagan.

Tengiz is one of the largest fields in the world. It is being developed by the Tengizchevroil consortium.

The project's license area includes the Tengiz field and the Korolevskoye field, which is smaller, but has significant reserves.

Recoverable reserves of the Tengiz and Korolevskoye fields are estimated between 750 million to 1.1 billion tons of oil.

The total explored reserves in the drilled and non-drilled sites at the Tengiz field's reservoir stand at 3.1 billion tons, or 26 billion barrels.

Karachaganak is also one of the world's largest fields. Its oil and condensate reserves stand at 1.2 billion tons, and gas reserves exceed 1.35 trillion cubic meters.

Almost 45 percent of gas and 16 percent of oil produced in Kazakhstan are being extracted from this field.

Kashagan is a large oil and gas field in Kazakhstan, located in the north of the Caspian Sea. The geological reserves of Kashagan are estimated at 4.8 billion metric tons of oil. The total oil reserves amount to 38 billion barrels; some 10 billion out of them are recoverable reserves.

There are large natural gas reserves at the Kashagan field - over one trillion cubic meters.

The production at the Kashagan field started September 2013, but in October, it was ceased after a gas leak in one of the main pipelines. The analysis revealed numerous cracks in the pipeline, which needed to be completely replaced.

The project's operator, the North Caspian Operating Co. (NCOC) confirmed the need for a complete replacement of the gas and oil pipelines, which have a total length of about 200 kilometers.

The production at the Kashagan is expected to resume in late 2016.
