Kazakhstan Precaspian exploration basin

Report summary

The Kazakh sector of the Precaspian Basin covers an area of 500,000 square kilometres and is by far the most prolific basin in Kazakhstan. Around 200 fields have been discovered to date, including the super-giant Tengiz, Karachaganak and Kashagan fields. However, in recent years, a deteriorating business environment has slowed progress. Moreover, funding challenges have been exacerbated by the current low oil price and several operators are now in financial distress.
