KazMunayGas, the national oil company of Kazakhstan, has allocated 68 billion tenge towards the rehabilitation of two valuable oil and gas fields, Uzenskoye and Karamanbas. This update was provided by the company’s press center. The project, which began last year, is being implemented by Ozenmunaigas, a major oil enterprise and subsidiary of KazMunayGas.

This year, the company’s leadership has approved a detailed task list and budget for the ongoing project. Of the total investment, 17 billion tenge was allocated last year, with an additional 51 billion tenge being added this year. The rehabilitation plan includes the deployment of over 200 Electric Submersible Pumps (ESPs), drilling 31 new wells, and undertaking extensive capital repairs of existing wells. Additionally, new methods to enhance oil recovery will be introduced, and a diagnostic and repair hall for underground equipment will be upgraded.

So far, 23 new wells have already been commissioned, and over 100 have been equipped with modern technology. The project aims to increase oil production by 136,000 tons by the end of the current year, with an overall goal of extracting nearly 19 million tons of additional oil by 2036.
