Our activities in Kazakhstan

Group of workers observe a colleague's computer together

In Kazakhstan, we are present in the exploration, development and production of hydrocarbons and natural gas, as well as in the renewable energy sector, with two wind power plants in Badamsha, in the region of Aktobe. The development of projects for the generation of electricity from renewable sources and experimentation with crops from which to extract raw materials for the production of biofuels are part of our commitment in Central Asia, where we create renewable and circular solutions to drive the energy transition. In this area we also focus on gas and new technologies.

How we operate in the country

The extraction of oil and gas from the large fields of Karachaganak and Kashagan

We are partners of the Karachaganak field for the production of oil, condensates and natural gas and  we are part of the North Caspian Sea PSA consortium responsible for the operations of the Kashagan oil and gas field. We also operate the Isatay and Abay blocks located in Kazakh waters in the Caspian Sea with state-run company Kaz-MunayGas (KMG).

The Badamsha wind farms and agreements to contribute to decarbonisation

To accelerate the energy transition, we built the Badamsha 1 and Badamsha 2 wind farms and confirmed the commissioning of an innovative 250 MW Hybrid Renewables-Gas Project in the Mangystau region. The solar and wind power generated will provide stable, low-carbon electricity to KMG facilities in the area, balanced with additional capacity from a gas power plant. The project leverages our international industrial expertise and pioneers the hybrid combination of state-of-the-art renewable power plants. We are also developing hydrogen and agribusiness projects with the state-owned KazMunaiGas, the Samruk-Kazyna Sovereign Wealth Fund (SK) and QazaqGaz (SK's portfolio company) and have signed additional energy transition and strategic cooperation agreements to share scientific research and develop new technologies.

Road safety and university education

We have launched higher education courses via our Eni Corporate University, in collaboration with leading universities, for example the University of Pavia for the Master Medea and the Kazakh British Technical University (KBTU). To make the roads of the West Kazakhstan Region safer, numerous training activities have been held for police offers, teachers, students and representatives of non-governmental organisations. We have contributed to improving the energy efficiency of a secondary school in Turkistan with the installation of a photovoltaic system, thermostats and insulating film.

Hybrid Renewables-Gas Project confirmed

Agreement signed in Rome for the construction of a wind and solar farm and a gas power plant in the Mangystau region.

Badamsha 2 wind farm opens

Badamsha 2 is the second Eni wind energy project in the region of Aktobe and doubles the installed capacity of the Badamsha 1 wind farm which came into operation at the start of 2020.

Production begins at Badamsha wind farm

With a capacity of 48 MW, the farm will supply the Region of Aktobe with around 198 GWh of electricity a year.

Rights awarded for the development of a photovoltaic plant

The MWp farm will be constructed by Eni in the region of Turkistan.

Agreement with GE Renewable Energy for the development of Badamsha

The company will supply 13 onshore wind turbines, 85 metres in height, for the construction of the wind farm.

Agreements in the exploration and renewable energy sector

The conditions for hydrocarbon exploration in Isatay are renewed and it is now possible to develop renewable energy generation projects in the country.

First crude oil dispatched from the Kashagan field

The first lot of crude oil produced by the onshore processing plant will be exported.

Eni enters Kazakhstan

The company begins its exploration activities across the country
