Minister: Kazakhstan considers creation of strategic oil reserve

Kazakhstan is considering setting up a strategic oil reserve, Kazakhstan's Oil and Gas Minister Uzakbay Karabalin said at a press conference at the Central Communication Service.

"Kazakhstan still is still discussing the issue of creating a strategic oil reserve aimed at reliable provision to the national economy of hydrocarbons. This is envisaged by the concept which was presented by me in government," Karabalin said.

According to the minister, there are enough counties today which do not have hydrocarbon reserves, but create strategic oil reserves. In addition, the world oil price also increases due to a high demand for energy resources.

Therefore we discuss the issue of creating a strategic oil reserve in order to reduce dependence on such price drops. But the volume and placement of this strategic reserve hasn't yet been decided," Karabalin said.
