The Kyzloi and Akkulka development is one of the first dry gas developments carried out in Kazakhstan with one of the first tie-ins by a non-State company to a major gas trunkline in Central Asia. Production commenced in December 2007.
Kyzyloi and Akkulka fields contain sweet (no sulphur), dry natural gas at shallow depths of up to 610 metres making for relatively low development and operating costs. The Kyzyloi and Akkulka fields are tied in to the major Bukhara-Urals gas pipeline by a 56 km pipeline owned and built by the Company and with a design capacity of up to 2.0 million cubic metres per day. Gas is pumped into the Bukhara-Urals trunkline at the Company’s Booster Compressor Station (BCS) at 910 km on the trunkline. The BCS consists of five separate compressor units plus continuous gas composition and flow measurement fully integrated into the Bukhara-Urals gas export system. The Company has been very successful in exploring for new gas in the area.
