Kazakhstan produces almost 4 mln tons of motor fuel in 2018


Astana, January 21 - Neftegaz.RU. Kazakhstan’s refineries produced 3.97 million tons of motor fuel (gasoline, jet fuel) in 2018. This volume is 29.8 % higher than in the previous year, the statistics committee of the Ministry of National Economy reported.

 

The republic produced 4.67 million tons of diesel fuel, that is, by 7.4 % more than in 2017, and 2.93 million tons of fuel oil, which is 12.9 % lower than a year earlier. The decline in the share of heavy petroleum products is due to the completion in 2018 of all 3 Kazakh refineries' modernization, which increased the refining depth and, consequently, increased the share of light oil products.

 

As many as 4.7 million tons of diesel fuel was produced  in 2018, thus showing a 7.4 % increase from the figures of 2017. Earlier, Kazakhstan has produced a new type of diesel fuel that will withstand severe frosts. A new type of fuel was produced at the end of November and was named Khazar-32 by a vote of the plant’s employees.

 

The cost of fuel in Kazakhstan is significantly lower than in neighboring countries. Thus, the retail price of gasoline brand AI-92 in Kazakhstan amounted to $0.4. Kazakhstan has 3 major oil refineries - Atyrau, Shymkent and Pavlodar.

 

Kanat Bozumbayev said in November 2018, that the volume of gasoline reserves in Kazakhstan is almost 352,000 tons. He also added that the need for fuel in Kazakhstan is completely closed.
