Report summary

Kazakhstan and China are set to expand the export capacity of the Kazakhstan-China oil pipeline from 250,000 b/d to over 400,000 b/d by 2015. However, China's NOCs' liquids output in Kazakhstan will start to decline from 2013. Working interest production will plateau around 290,000 b/d this year (16% of the national total) and then fall. Action is needed soon if Chinese NOCs want to maintain their level of equity exports and fill the pipeline.
