Kazakhstan is ready to cofinance Brody-Plotsk oil pipeline construction and transport up to 8mn tons of oil via the Ukrainian transport system to Black Sea, Ukrtransnafta company’s press service informed.

The share and terms of Kazakhstan’s participation in the project will be finalized after the feasibility report is ready. The governments of Ukraine and Poland have also given the political support to the project. As informed, earlier, Ukraine and Kazakhstan will draft an intergovernmental agreement for Kazakh oil transit via Ukraine in Q3.

Oil extraction in Kazakhstan is forecast at 52mn tons this year, out of which 8.5mn tons will be used domestically and 44mn tons of oil will be exported.

It is planned that the national oil and gas monopoly KazMunaiGas will be an operator for Kazakh gas transportations to Ukraine and Neftegas Ukraine will represent the Ukrainian side.
