The Group of companies of KazTransGas JSC (hereinafter – KTG) includes two subsoil users: Amangeldy Gas LLP and KMG-Kansu Operating LLP, engaged in exploration and development of the Amangeldy deposit group and the Kansu deposit, respectively.

The volume and type of estimated proved reserves and production for 2017 for the Group of companies KTG:

At the deposits of the Amangeldy group:

  • geological reserves of gas in category C1 – 26,762 MMcm, in category C2 – 13,664 MMcm;
  • recoverable gas reserves in category C1 – 18,984 MMcm, in category C2 – 9,733 MMcm;
  • geological reserves of condensate in category C1 – 1522.2 Kt, in category C2 – 664.2 Kt;
  • recoverable reserves of condensate in category C1 – 493.8 Kt, in category C2 – 304.45 Kt;
  • volume of produced gas – 343.738 MMcm, with the plan – 343.687 million m3;
  • volume of produced condensate – 20.650 Kt, with the plan – 20.125 Kt.

The Kansu field is at the stage of geological exploration, gas reserves are accounted for as forecasted off-balance (forecasted) in the State balance of minerals in the amount of 4,314 MMcm in categories C1 + C2.

(for reference: category C1 – proved reserves, C2 – previously estimated (undeveloped)).
