Azerbaijani company participates in oil and gas exhibition-conference in Kazakhstan

Azerbaijan’s “Technip Maritime Overseas Ltd” participates in “Mangystau Oil, Gas & İnfrastructure 2010” exhibition and “OilTech Mangystau 2010” conference in Kazakh city Aktau.

The event brought together over 60 companies from Russia, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Russia, Romania and France.

The participants will discuss the problems of development of the offshore oil and gas fields in the Caspian Sea, oil and gas transportation, and new technologies for offshore oil field development. KazMunaiGas has no plans for an IPO anytime soon

The Kazakh government will not be selling stakes of national energy giant KazMunaiGas through an initial public offering (IPO) anytime soon, a top Kazakh official said in an apparent reversal of a previous announcement.

“Samruk Kazyna (the republic’s Sovereign Wealth Fund) would like to make clear that, without prejudice to future decisions that may be taken by its board and management team, it has no plans to IPO … KazMunaiGas in the near future,” the Reuters news agency on Tuesday cited the Chief of the national holding company Kairat Kelimbetov as saying.

Kelimbetov had told the media last month Samruk-Kazyna may sell up to 20 percent of the national oil and gas firm next year to raise “billions” of dollars, the Bloomberg news agency reported on October 20.

Kelimbetov also said last month said the Astana government is seeking foreign investors to develop the republic’s oil, gas and rare metals industries.

KazMunaiGas said in April it needs to raise some $1.5-2.0 billion a year to develop the massive Northern Caspian offshore Kashagan oilfield that was discovered in 2000.

Kashagan is the biggest oilfield outside the Middle East and the biggest to be discovered in the last three decades.

Last month Kelimbetov also said Samruk-Kazyna may sell stakes in other firms it owns.

Its extensive list of holdings includes uranium mining giant KazAtomProm, power utilities and a string of leading banks. Russia eyes Polish oil assets

“If the plans are implemented, Russian companies are quite able openly to take part in realisation of these plans and show their effectiveness.”

He led a Russian delegation to Poland today where Moscow and Warsaw signed an agreement on increasing Russian gas supplies. Gazprom makes Algeria hit
