Kazakhstan-China oil pipeline construction
JSC NC KazMunayGas in conjunction with China National Petroleum Corporation has worked on the construction of Kazakhstan-China oil pipeline. First, the project of Kazakhstan-China oil pipeline construction aims to diversify oil transportation as part of the creation of independent Kazakhstan's multi-vector policy in the system of hydrocarbons transportation.
Kazakhstan-China oil pipeline construction is provided in two stages. The first stage was the implementation of the project Atasu - Alashankou oil pipeline, construction of which was carried out in accordance with the Framework Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Government of the People's Republic of China on the development of comprehensive cooperation in the field of oil and gas (Beijing, May 17, 2004).
In order to build an oil pipeline JSC KazTransOil and Chinese National Corporation for exploration and development of oil and gas (a subsidiary of CNPC) established on a parity basis LLP Kazakhstan-China Pipeline (LLP KCP).
The length of the pipeline Atasu-Alashankou is 963 km. Pipeline diameter - 813 mm. Pipeline capacity at the first stage is 10 mln. tons per year with further expansion up to 20 mln. tons per year. The pipeline passes through the territory of three regions: Karaganda, East Kazakhstan and Almaty to the final destination Alashankou in China. The project was financed by debt financing under the guarantees of the Chinese side. Transport of oil through Atasu- Alashankou pipeline started in 2006.
Construction of the oil pipeline Kenkiyak-Kumkol with capacity of 10 mln. tons per year is the first stage of the Phase 2 of Kazakhstan-China oil pipeline project, and it was conducted in accordance with the "Agreement on Basic Principles of Construction of the Phase 2 of the Kazakhstan-China oil pipeline between China National Petroleum Corporation and the Joint-Stock Company National Company KazMunayGas" (Agreement) dated December 20, 2006 by the KCP LLP on a parity basis with the Chinese side.
Kenkiyak-Kumkol oil pipeline is 794 km long with diameter 813 mm; it passes through the territory of Aktobe, Kyzylorda and Karaganda regions in Kazakhstan. The oil pipeline capacity at the first stage is 10 mln. tons per year with further expansion up to 20 mln. tons per year. The project was financed by debt financing under the guarantees of the Chinese side. Transport of oil through Kenkiyak-Kumkol pipeline started in October 2009.
Gradual increase in capacity of Kazakhstan-China transport system in all areas of from Atyrau to Alashankou to 20 MT/Y is expected within the 2nd stage of the Phase 2 as the need for an increase in export capacity and the requirements of the internal market grow.
2nd stage of Kazakhstan-China oil pipeline Phase 2 includes:
- Expanding the capacity of the Atasu- Alashankou pipeline to 20 MT/Y - completed in December 2013.
- Reverse and expansion of Kenkiyak-Atyrau oil pipeline to 12 MT/Y.
- Expanding Kenkiyak-Kumkol oil pipeline to 20 MT/Y.
- Reconstruction and expansion of Kumkol-Atasu oil pipeline.
Following the results of 2014 oil exports to China amounted to 11.7 mln. tons of oil.
