BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 5. The Government of Kazakhstan has allocated 3.6 billion Kazakh tenge ($8.1 million) from its reserve fund to complete the construction of the main gas pipeline with the installation of an automated gas distribution station from the Zhanaozen-Aktau gas pipeline, Trend reports via the PM's Office.

According to the information, the relevant resolution was signed by Kazakh Prime Minister Alikhan Smailov.

It was noted that currently, the northern part of Aktau is actively developing. In particular, high-rise residential buildings and social facilities are being built. This year, it is intended to install a number of block-modular boilers and construct two new boiler buildings in order to deliver heat to the growing area of the city. Since the new energy sources will be gas-fired, the necessary infrastructure needs to be expanded.

In general, the new 52-kilometer-long gas pipeline will provide heat and commercial gas to about 150,000 residents of the new neighborhoods of Aktau, villages Kyzyltobe, Daulet and Bayandy of Munaily district, and Akshukur and Sain Shapagatov of Tupkaragan district.

Its construction is carried out as part of the development of the external infrastructure of the Caspian Energy Hub.
