Natural and associated gas production increased by 3.9% to 8,455 mln m³ (55.8 mmboe) in 2019. Operating assets produced 2,636 mln m³ (31% of the total), and 5,819 mln m³ (69%) came from mega projects, with the Tengiz and Karachaganak mega projects accounting for the bulk of production.
Gas production values are the actual volume of gas produced, including gas reinjected for own needs. Gas reinjection is used to maintain reservoir pressure, which is essential for sustaining high oil production rates.
Commercial gas production in 2019 was 4,922 mln m³, of which 1,823 mln m³ were produced from operating assets and 3,099 mln m³ from mega projects. Year-on-year, commercial gas production increased by a cumulative 91 mln m³, or 1.9%.
Along with processing own feedstock, the KazGPZ plant produces commercial gas using feedstocks supplied by KMG’s other operating assets that do not produce commercial gas themselves.
