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 2020 was 4,798 mln m3, of which 1,877 mln m3 were produced from operating assets and 2,921 mln m3 from megaprojects. Year-on-year, commercial gas production decreased by cumulative 124 mln m3, or 2.5%.
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.
