Kashagan oil project in the Caspian offshore will be economically viable with oil rices standing at $100 per barrel, a Tengrinews.kz journalist reported earlier, citing Sauat Mynbayev, KazMunaiGas Chairman of the Board.
Commercial production at Kashagan started September 11, 2013. However, it was suspended 2 weeks later due to a gas leakage. The production process was resumed shortly. However, another leakage was detected in October.
Last year we planned this year’s crude production output would make up 83 million tons. We plan the figure to make up 81.8 million tons, with exports standing at 54 million tons: Finance Minister Bakhyt Sultanov.
