Transmeridian Exploration signs crude oil transportation agreement with KazTransOil

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, June 23 -- Transmeridian Exploration Inc., Houston, signed a transportation agreement allowing for use of the national crude oil pipeline and terminal system for South Alibek field production in Kazakhstan (OGJ Online, Feb. 2, 2004).

It's the first step in allowing Transmeridian to complete a pipeline connection to the KazTransOil terminal 1.5 km from South Alibek. Initial plans call for installation of a pipeline transfer and measuring system to handle up to 30,000 b/d.

An operating agreement with KazTransOil's western division will be required upon finalization of all technical aspects and connection with the terminal.

Suppliers estimate a 6-month delivery timetable for the pumping and metering instrumentation required by the KazTransOil. Transmeridian expects pipeline deliveries to begin by second quarter 2005.

Meanwhile, Transmeridian has an agreement in principal with a local crude marketing firm that will allow for rail export until the pipeline connection is established.
