ASTANA – The repairs at the Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) will not affect revenues to the National Fund and the nation’s budget, said Prime Minister Alikhan Smailov at a Nov. 10 Senate briefing, reported the Prime Minister’s press service.
“In 2022, the National Fund plans to receive 3.9 trillion tenge (US$8.5 billion) from the oil sector. According to the results of 10 months, this plan is over fulfilled by 1 trillion tenge (US$2.18 billion),” Smailov emphasized.

In October, the CPC expected to finish repairing two single-point moorings, the SPM-1 and SPM-2. However, due to inclement weather, these works were suspended.
According to Smailov, the repair of the SPM-1 will be completed in the coming days. Repair of the SPM-2 will begin immediately after that. The work is planned to be completed in two to three weeks.
