New oil pipeline built in Kazakhstan

July 2, 2014

Oil from a field in Kazakhstan is connected to a regional pipeline network to facilitate exports, oil and gas company Max Petroleum said.
Max, a company focused predominately on Kazakhstan, said it commissioned a pipeline that connects its Zhana Makat oil field to an export network about six miles away.

"It is now possible to deliver oil directly from the Zhana Makat central processing facility to the national Kazakh pipeline network enabling direct delivery of both domestic and export oil sales," the company said in a statement Tuesday.

The company said the pipeline means end users are saving about $4 per barrel on oil from the Zhana Makat field.
