Kazakhstan’s Oil and Gas Upstream 2008 provides the most comprehensive and unique publicly available examination of the country’s exploration and production (E&P) sector, with focus on the upstream operators, projects and the drilling and workover activity.

Kazakhstan’s Oil and Gas Upstream
2008 is designed to serve as an indispensable practical support tool for strategic, investment, business development and marketing decision-making.

The study consists of the following parts:

1. Overview of Kazakhstan’s oil and gas industry including:
  • upstream
  • transportation and exports
  • downstream and legislation

2. Profiles of 48 operator-companies currently active in Kazakhstan’s upstream with details on:

  • ownership and legal structure
  • key assets: licenses and reserves, field infrastructure
  • current operations: exploration, production, drilling
  • exports and marketing issues
  • contact information

3. Detailed data on drilling and workover activity in Kazakhstan as of autumn 2008:

  • 106 operators
  • 135 fields
  • 60 drilling and workover contractors
  • over 170 rigs

The data has been verified as of September 2008 and is split by:

  • operator
  • field / region
  • drilling / workover contractor
  • rig type
  • well type

Sample drilling/workover profile by operator is available at request.

Kazakhstan’s Oil and Gas Upstream 2008
is an indispensable source of information for:

  • oil and gas companies examining opportunities to build or expand operations in Kazakhstan
  • oilfield service companies
  • equipment manufacturers and suppliers
  • investment and finance institutions
  • construction and engineering companies
  • trading companies
  • governmental and international energy bodies
