Kazakhstan refines its oil strategy
Reliance on hydrocarbons is increasing. While the government talks about diversification the reality is much greater emphasis and visible progress in expanding oil and gas activities. Kashagan output rising steadily. The country produced an average of 1.73 mln barrels of oil per day last year, up by 10.5% from 2016. Most of that extra oil came from the Kashagan field, which finally started producing in late 2016 and will soon plateau at 370,000 barrels per day. Total Kazakhstan production is set to reach at least 2.15 mbpd by 2023. Kazakhstan is out of the OPEC deal.
