(in Former Soviet Union)



AREA (on): 2,717,300 km2

OIL PEAK: 2016 (forecast)


Oil and gas production in Kazakhstan are both increasing from onshore and offshore regions, especially in the North Caspian basin.

Here foreign technology has kick-started the development of high sulphur and offshore fields. These especially include the Karachaganak gas condensate field near the western Russian border, the Tengiz field due north of the Caspian Sea and the future delayed Kashagan field in shallow waters of the Caspian Sea.

The country is also better able to exploit its oil and gas reserves as new pipeline systems are introduced.



Kazakhstani oil consumption will increase despite dipping in 2007 and 2008. Most of its oil is exported and exports are growing rapidly.

Kazakhstani gas consumption will also increase rapidly after a dip as the country develops its indigenous gas infrastructure. Meanwhile net gas exports have commenced, initially into Russia but eventually gas will be moved directly southwards and eastwards.





This is a simple forecast - detailed forecasts including offshore and onshore, deep water splits, sedimentary basins and major fields and drilling etc. can be purchased for most countries.
