T. Kasymov, OPS "Kenkiyak", and the linear part of the "Kenkiyak- Atyrau" oil
pipeline has been completed. Acceptance of the facilities of the first start-up
facilities made it possible to increase the volume of oil transportation in
reverse mode from 90-100 thousand to 190-200 thousand tons per month from July
1, 2020. As part of the second start-up facilities at the OPS Aman construction
site, hydraulic tests of process pipelines were carried out, and a tie-in was
made to the Kenkiyak-Atyrau oil trunk pipeline at the connection point of the
treatment unit launching unit at 226 km. All works, including commissioning,
have been completed at the OPS Kulsary and OPS Aman. In addition, voltage was
supplied to two high-voltage lines of 110 kV, a complete transformer substation
10/04 kV of the OPS Aman and the main pumping units of the OPS Aman.
The project "The first stage of the reverse section of the Kenkiyak-Atyrau oil
pipeline with a capacity of up to 6 million tons per year" is one of the stages
of construction and development of the "Kazakhstan-China" oil pipeline system.
Putting it into operation will allow for the transportation of oil from West

per year to Pavlodar and Shymkent refineries, as well as for export to China
via the "Atasu-Alashankou" oil pipeline and railway tanks using "Shagyr"
