Kazakhstan’s Oil and Gas Upstream 2010 provides the most comprehensive and unique publicly available examination of the countrys exploration and production (E&P) sector, with focus on the upstream operators, projects and the drilling and workover activity.

Kazakhstans Oil and Gas Upstream 2010
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 Kazakhstans oil and gas industry including:

  • upstream
  • transportation and exports
  • downstream and legislation
2. Profiles of 50 operator-companies currently active in Kazakhstans upstream with details on:
  1. ownership and legal structure
  2. key assets: licenses and reserves, field infrastructure
  3. current operations: exploration, production, drilling
  4. exports and marketing issues
  5. contact information
Sample drilling/workover profile by operator is available at request.

3. Detailed historical and 2009 year-end data on drilling activity in Kazakhstan (broken down by region)

  • production and exploration drilling in 2005-2009
  • rating of leading drilling contractors in 2009
  • major customers of drilling services in 2009
  • market shares of major drilling contractors by drilling meterage in 2009
  • market shares of major drilling contractors in production and exploration drilling
Kazakhstans Oil and Gas Upstream 2010 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
