Investment projects

In June 2017, the Company implemented a major project - the associated petroleum gas treatment plant of the Prorvinsk group of fields with a capacity of 150 mln. m3 per year.

The installation is designed for the utilization of associated petroleum gas from the Prorvinsk group of fields in the Zhylyoysky district of the Atyrau region.

Currently, commercial gas from the installation is supplied to the Central Asia – Center main gas pipeline, thereby significantly reducing the forced combustion of associated petroleum gas at the torches of the Prorvinsk group of fields.

The Merichem LO-CAT gas processing technology used at the plant is environmentally friendly and ensures high efficiency of hydrogen sulfide removal. The entire gas treatment process is fully automated and provides several degrees of emergency protection.

Commercial gas, stable gas condensate – 4.1 ths. tons and granular sulfur – 2.7 ths. tons will be produced annually at the plant.

Similar installations for the preparation of associated petroleum gas from 2012 to 2013 have been successfully operating at the Vostochny Makat and S. Balgimbayev fields, supplying natural gas at a discounted price to the population of three districts of the Atyrau region.

In order to increase operational efficiency and economic profitability within the framework of approved business initiatives, the company is implementing pilot projects for processing electricity production from associated petroleum gas (APG) at the fields of Uaz Severny OGPD Kaynarmunaigas, South-West Kamyshitovoe, Gran OGPD Zhaiykmunaigas. The projects involve the utilization of APG by generating electric energy at gas piston and gas turbine power plants with its further use for their own needs. The implementation of the project will ensure additional oil production, as well as increase the reliability of independent power supply to the company's social and production facilities.
