Work Concludes on Pipeline in Western Kazakhstan
Karachaganak Petroleum Operating B.V. announced the successful completion of the construction of the 78-km Karachaganak-Chingirlau high-pressure gas pipeline.
The construction of the Karachaganak-Chingirlau gas pipeline was conducted in four stages, from 2002 to 2006, as part of the KPO social program. KPO’s investments into this project exceeded US$6.5 million.
KPO General Director, Roger Fox noted that, “For many years now, local communities have been able to see how KPO’s investments result in new social infrastructure facilities.”
“I am sure that KPO’s social program will further ensure that the potential of the Karachaganak project is tapped for the benefit of Kazakhstan and its people,” Roger Fox added.
The pipeline, which crosses the territory of the Burlin and Chingirlau regions, allows for supplying eight residential settlements of the Western Kazakhstan Oblast with gas. These settlements are; Zhanatalap, Karakemir, Uspenovka, Taldysai, Myrzagora, Ashesai, Shoktybai, and Chingirlau.
The state commissioning of the Ashesai-Chingirlau pipeline and its associated infrastructure was made in December 2006.
As a part of the Karachaganak-Chingirlau gas pipeline construction project, a gas pumping substation, an operations office and a radio tower have been constructed with KPO’s investments. The radio tower allows for the automated management of the gas pipeline operation. Support service vehicles were also provided by KPO. Moreover, eight kilometers of ten kilowatt power lines and transformer substations were installed.
The general contractor for this project was the local company; KurylysGas, which won the contract as the result of an open tender.
