From February to April, the company delivered 90,000 tons of Kazakh oil through the trunk oil pipeline system of Russia’s state-owned pipeline operator Transneft to the Adamowo-Zastawa point for further delivery to Germany.

In December last year, KazTransOil submitted an annual application to transport 1.2 million tons of oil in 2023 via the same route as part of the Kazakh-Russian intergovernmental agreement signed on June 7, 2022.

The company confirmed its technical capability for this purpose, noting that real oil transportation volumes depend on oil companies’ requests.
