The project "Increasing the capacity of MGL Kazakhstan-China (first section)"

On July 27, 2011 Minutes No. 2 "On Amendments and Additions to the Agreement between the Governments of the RK and PRC on Cooperation in the Construction and Operation of the Kazakhstan-China Gas Pipeline of August 18, 2007" was signed, according to which the Parties agreed to increase the capacity of the first section of MGL "Kazakhstan-China" for 25 bln. cm. per year, of which 20 bln. cm. per year are intended for use by the Chinese side for the transit of Turkmen and Uzbek gas to China, and 5 bln. cm. per year for the Kazakh side in order to meet the gas demand of the domestic market of the Republic of Kazakhstan, as well as potential gas exports to China.

The project involves the construction of a 1,308 km long main gas line with a throughput capacity of up to 25 bln. cm. per year.

Implementation term of the project: 2012-2017.

On September 26, 2011 an Agreement was signed between KMG, KTG and TAPLine on the basic principles of organization of desing, financing, construction and operation of the thread "C" of the first section of gas pipeline "Kazakhstan-China".

As of December 31, 2016 the following major projects have been completed:

• On July 9, 2015 the linear part of the gas pipeline was commissioned        ;

• On July 16, 2015 compressor station No.6 was commissioned;

• On July 23, 2015 the compressor station No.2 was commissioned;

• On August 3, 2016 the compressor station No.4 was commissioned;

• On August 10, 2016 the compressor station No.8 was commissioned.

• On December 31, 2015 by the order of the DCRNM and PC of the Republic of Kazakhstan No. 278-N the tariffs was approved for the service of commercial gas transportation through the main gas pipeline for the period 2016-20 in the amount of 3 494 KZT per 1000 cm. excluding VAT.

At present there has been reached the design capacity up to 20 bln. cm./year, further, taking into account the construction of compressor stations No. 1, No. 3, No. 5, No. 7 in 2017 it is planned to increase the capacity of the gas pipeline to 25 bln. cm./year.

Since the start of the gas pipeline's launch, as of February 5, 2017, 21 bln. cms. have been transported.   

 

The project "Construction of gas pipeline Beyneu-Bozoy-Shymkent "

The project "Construction of the gas pipeline Beineu-Bozoy-Shymkent" (the construction of the compressor stations Bozoy and Karaozek) is continuing to ensure stable provision of gas in the southern regions of the Republic of Kazakhstan, reduce dependence on imported gas and ensure energy security of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

 The route of the gas pipeline passes through the territory of Mangistau, Aktyubinsk, Kyzylorda and South Kazakhstan regions and has the following main technical characteristics: 1-stage - 2012-2017, throughput capacity up to 6 bln. cm. per year; 2-stage - 2013-2017, capacity of up to 10 bln. cm. per year, actual length of 1 450 km (in single-line version).

In order to implement the Project in the period 2010-2016. The following is done:

• the Agreement on cooperation in the construction and operation of the Kazakhstan-China gas pipeline was signed between the Governments of the RK and PRC (IGA) of August 18, 2007;

• the Agreement on the Main Principles of Construction and Operation of the Kazakhstan-Chinese Gas Pipeline (AMP) was signed within the frame of the official visit of President Hu Jintao to Kazakhstan on June 12, 2010;

• a joint Kazakhstan-China project company - Gas Pipeline Beyneu-Shymkent LLP was established on January 18, 2011 in order to implement the Project in the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan;

• the Act of the State Acceptance Commission was signed on December 2, 2013 on the commissioning of the linear part of the section "Bozoi-Shymkent" (311-1453 km), GIS "Bozoy" with a capacity of up to 2.5 bln. cm. of gas per year;

• on December 31, 2015 by order of the DCRNM&PC of the Republic of Kazakhstan No. 278-D was approved a tariff for commodity transportation of gas through the main gas pipelines in the amount of KZT18,071 per 1,000 cm. without VAT, with commissioning since March 01, 2016;

• on December 30, 2016 the Act of the Acceptance Commission was signed on the commissioning of the linear part of the Beineu-Bozoi (0-311 km) section with a throughput capacity of up to 5 bln. cm. of gas per year;

• As of February 5, 2017 5.4 bln. cm. were transported since the beginning of transportation;

Work on the construction of along-route roads, RMS and FC "Shornak", "Karaozek", "Aksuat" and "Saksaulsk", Bozoy FC and CS are continued.

 

The project "Construction of the compressor station Karaozek"

In order to ensure the capacity of the Beyneu-Bozoy-Shymkent gas pipeline to 10 billion m3 / year in short time, on the Investment Committee of KazMunayGas JSC NC No. 8-16 dated on May 25, 2016 decided whether or not to construct Karaozek CS using strength and capacities of Intergas Central Asia JSC.
