2014-03-14 11:40:02 - Kazakhstan's Oil and Gas Upstream - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
About 80 companies are engaged in the Kazakhstan oil production market. However, the bulk of oil production is provided by 11 operators, producing over 1 million ton per year (approximately 21 mbopd) of crude each: they account for over 90% of total oil production in the country. In this category a group of leaders, which are far ahead of other market players, can be distinguished: Tengizchevroil (TCO) â 24.8 MMt (181 MMbbl) in 2011, or 31% of the country´s total output, Karachaganak Petroleum Operating (KPO) â 12.05 MMt (88 MMbbl) or about 15%, and National Company KazMunaiGas (NC KMG) â 7.79 million tons (56.8 MMbbl), about 10%.
For the period of 2001-2011 annual oil production in Kazakhstan grew from 39.9 MMtpa
to 80.3 MMtpa, or an average by nearly 10% per annum. At the same time, since 2005 the rate of growth has sufficiently decreased. Production of oil and condensate declined by 1.3% in 2012 compared to 2011. Major producers such as Tengizchevroil and KazMunaiGas cut back production. So far, oil is produced exclusively from onshore fields and virtually confined to five regions: Atyrau, Mangistau, Western Kazakhstan, Kyzylorda and Aktyubinsk.
During 2006 and 2007, NC KMG acquired stakes - ranging from 33% to 50% - in three large producers: PetroKazakhstan, Kazgermunai, and Karazhanbasmunai. Following these acquisitions, in January 2008, NC KMG´s share in Kashagan - the largest offshore field development project - doubled to 16.7 from 8.3. Ðt the end of 2009, NC KMG completed the acquisition of 50% interest in Mangistaumunaigas, the fifth largest oil producer in the country.
In December 2011, Kazakhstan´s authorities finally secured the consent of Karachaganak Petroleum Operating B.V.´s shareholders to sell a 10 percent share in the Karachaganak field development project to KazMunaiGas for $3 billion.
Commercial gas production in Kazakhstan has been conducted since the mid-1980s, when development of the Tengiz and Karachaganak fields was begun. Production of gas, which had positive dynamics in the Soviet era, started to rapidly decline after the disintegration of the USSR, and only starting in 1999 did a sustained rise in gas production occur.
From 2001 to 2012 gas production (natural and associated) in the country rose from 11.6 bcm to 40.1 bcm per year (by 345%). The share of natural gas in the total output was 53%, the rest was accounted for associated gas - 18.9 bcm, or 47.1%.
In 2012 there were 60 gas-producing companies in Kazakhstan, with about 77 % of the total annual gas production coming from two leading producers, Karachaganak Petroleum Operating Co. And TengizÑhevroil (40.7% and 31.6%, respectively). CNPC-Aktobemunaigas ranked third, lagging far behind the leaders.
