Pavlodar-based oil refinery has started processing Kazakhstan’s oil, Bnews.kz quotes Vice Director General Evgeniy Dvurekov as saying.

According to Mr. Dvurekov, the facility received the first batch of 30 000 tons of Kazakh oil from oilfields located in Aktyubinsk and Kyzylorda oblasts.

He elaborated that in December the facility plans to process up to 350 000 tons of Kazakh oil.
Originally the oil refinery was designed to process only Russia’s oil.

At the moment there are three oil refineries operating in Kazakhstan: in Atyrau, Shymkent and Pavlodar.

According to Minister of Oil and Gas Sauat Mynbayev, “overhaul of the three refineries will enable to raise processing to 17.5 million tons, introducing deeper conversion to start producing petrol in line with Euro-5 emission standards”.

“After 2019-2020 plans are there to construct another refinery”, Mynbayev said.

Mid-July Tengrinews.kz reported, citing PM Karim Massimov, that a special survey had been made and it had shown that it was more feasible for Kazakhstan to upgrade three existing plants, rather than construct a new one. Construction of the fourth plant would cost the country $6 billion, while reconstruction of existing refineries will cost $2.5-3 billion. Massimov said that modernization of existing plants would finish not later than on January 1, 2015.
