Project “Modernization of the gas distribution network in Taraz”
The project implementation period is 2011-2019.
The project provides for the replacement of low pressure steel gas pipelines with medium-pressure polyethylene in the low-rise sector, the replacement of dilapidated underground gas pipelines, the installation of individual cabinet gas control units with a SMART card directly at each low-rise building consumer, and the installation of block-type gas control units.
As a result of the modernization of the gas distribution system in Taraz, it is planned to increase the throughput capacity by 49 thousand m3/hour, from 101.5 thousand m3/hour to 150.5 thousand m3/hour, reduce technical and technological gas losses due to leakages through gas pipelines, reduce operating costs for capital repairs to 70% for next 40-50 years, extend the service life of the city’s gas distribution system for 50 years (warranty period for polyethylene gas pipelines), eliminate the possibility of unauthorized tie-ins and gas extraction.
As of January 01, 2019, the volume of investments utilized under the Project amounted to KZT 17.6 billion, excluding VAT, or 91% of the approved value. Since the beginning of the Project implementation, 29 thousand subscribers have been reconnected, 861.75 km of new gas pipelines have been built, 19,517 units, 27 gas distribution units, 1 gas control block uni have been installed.
Replacing the old aboveground steel gas pipeline with a more durable polyethylene in the underground version not only increased the reliability and safety of the networks, but also made it possible to preserve the unique architectural appearance of Taraz city.
Project «Modernization, reconstruction and new construction of gas distribution networks of settlements in Mangystau oblasts”
The investment project was initiated in 2015 within the framework of Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation concluded on February 05, 2015 between the Akimat of Mangistau oblast, KazMunayGas NC JSC and KazTransGas JSC regarding long-term and mutually beneficial cooperation in the implementation of projects of construction, modernization and reconstruction of gas supply facilities in Mangystau oblast.
The project is aimed at upgrading and reconstruction, as well as the construction of gas networks in Mangystau oblast in order to improve reliability and the quality of services, eliminate gas shortages for consumers due to insufficient performance and poor technical condition of gas networks.
The project envisages the construction of new gas networks, high, medium and low pressure gas pipelines, high pressure feed gas pipelines with the installation of three AGDS in Zhanaozen, a gas lateral from the Okarem-Beineu MG to Shetpe cillage with the installation of AGDS, inter-settlement, inlet underground gas pipelines of high and medium pressure, as well as intra-settlement gas pipelines of low pressure.
As of January 01, 2019 the volume of investments utilized under the Project amounted to KZT 23.9 billion, excluding VAT, or 98% of the approved value.
As of the reporting date, totally 1,322.455 km of gas pipelines were built and upgraded, 6 sets of automatic gas distribution stations, 34 gas distribution unit, 41 gas distribution block units have been installed. 5 settlements (Batyr residential area in Munaylinskyi region, Zharma and Baskudyk villages in Mangystau region, Borankol village in Beineu region, 18 streets in Beineu village of Beineu region, 2 auls in Borankol village of Beineu region) were gasified, 1,000 new subscribers were connected.
In 2019, it is planned to complete the Project implementation.
Project “Expanding gasification of settlements of Kostanay oblast”
The investment project was initiated in 2016 in accordance with the tripartite memorandum of mutual cooperation between the Akimat of Kostanay oblast, KazMunayGas NC JSC and KazTransGas JSC, concluded on November 17, 2015.
The Project completed this year. The total investment cost is KZT 6.8 billion, excluding VAT. Within the Project, 237.889 km of new gas pipelines were built, 1 automatic gas distribution station, 11 gas control block stations, 4 gas distribution units were installed. Seven settlements were gasified (Kachar village in Rudny town, Oktyabrsky village in Lisakovsk town, Toguzak village in Karabalykskyi region, Antonovka, Alchanovka in Denisovskyi region, Auliyekol in Auliyekolsky region – gas feeding pipeline was connected, Rudnyi town - continued gasification).
The number of connected subscribers in gasified settlements amounted to 1.2 thousand subscribers, including 934 private houses, 250 apartments in large panel houses.
Project “Gasification of Almaty, modernization, reconstruction of gas distribution systems of Almaty”
The project was initiated in 2018 with a deadline till 2021, inclusive. The project envisages gasification of residential areas/areas with private houses in Almaty, which have not yet been connected to the gas supply system, as well as reconstruction of the existing gas distribution networks in Almaty. The project contributes to the improvement of the environmental situation in the city, will allow connecting about 4.1 thousand new subscribers to the gas supply system with an average annual consumption of 15.8 million m3 of gas.
In 2018, in Almaty 21.4 km gas pipelines and 10 cabinet gas control units were reconstructed. Gasification within the project and connection of new subscribers is planned from 2019.
