Kazakh gas plant starts up

By OGJ editors

Zhaikmunai LP, a UK-based independent active in Chinarevskoye field in northwestern Kazakhstan, reported that Trains 1 and 2 of its natural gas treatment plant in the region have begun operations.

The plant treats condensate from Zhaikmunai-operated wells as well as associated gas from the company’s oil-treatment unit, producing stabilized condensate, LPG, and dry gas. Each train of the gas treatment plant can process 850 million cu m/year.

Over recent weeks, the company said, production capacity of crude oil and gas plant products reached “higher range values.” The company expects to “gain in consistency as final production flow adjustments are being made.”

Production ramp-up with a goal of the gas plant reaching design production will continue over the coming weeks, the company said.

Zhaikmunai’s principal producing asset is Chinarevskoye field. Zhaikmunai LLP, a wholly owned subsidiary of Zhaikmunai, holds a 100% interest in and operates the production-sharing agreement for Chinarevskoye field.
