Kazakhstan’s Kashagan oil output falls due to unplanned maintenance

Production of oil and gas condensate at Kazakhstan as its Kashagan project decreased due to unplanned maintenance according to the energy ministry.

While it declined to elaborate, two industry sources said that daily production at Kashagan had fallen from 365,000 barrels to 294,000 barrels on average in early October.

The energy ministry said the drop in production was a caused by a loss of pressure at one compressor and subsequent maintenance. They furthered that repairs would be completed “in the near future”.

Kashagan Oil is a major component of CPC Blend crude which is shipped via the Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) system.
