ABOUT KASHAGAN

The Kashagan field, named after a 19th century Kazakh poet from Mangistau, is one of the world's largest oil discoveries of the last forty years.

PROJECT INFORMATION
DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY
     
imgHydrocarbon discoveries within the NCSPSA contract area include Kashagan, Kalamkas, Kashagan South West, Aktoty and Kairan. Given its size and technical complexity, the Kashagan field will be developed in phases. Phase I, known as the Experimental Programme or EP, is already in the construction phase.
TECHNICAL CHALLENGES
EXPORT STRATEGY
 
The Kashagan project is one of the most challenging projects ever undertaken. The transportation of Kashagan oil to the markets where it will be used requires a combination of export methods, some of which exist and some of which may need to be developed.
SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT
H2S AND SULPHUR MANAGEMENT
 
NCOC places the utmost importance on safety and environmental responsibility.  The consortium is determined to develop a world-class project that is designed and operated to high environmental and safety standards. Kashagan is considered a high-pressure, low-temperature oil field with a high content of ‘sour gas’.
