Moscow, November 30 - Neftegaz.RU. The companies have signed a corporate agreement on the operation of the Butadien joint venture for the project implementation for the production of butadiene rubbers.
The document has been signed by Nail Maganov, General Director of TATNEFT, and Alik Aidarbayev, Management Board Chairman of KazMunayGas.

Nail Maganov said:
  • TATNEFT has big plans in petrochemistry, and we are happy to develop this area together with our Kazakh partners
  • We already have the collaborative experience, as we now also apply joint efforts in the construction of the tyre manufacturing factory in the Karaganda region, and this is the practical implementation of the Strategy for the economic integration of the countries - members of the Eurasian Union
  • We have assured ourselves once again that Kazakhstan has created the most comfortable conditions for the implementation of large-scale investment projects
  • I am confident that a new joint venture for the production of butadiene rubbers will contribute to strengthening the economies of our countries and the well-being of our people
Butadiene-styrene synthetic rubber is used to produce highly wear-resistant and frost-resistant tyres with high dynamic endurance.
The plans provide that the production will be launched in 2026 at the territory of the SEZ «National Industrial Petrochemical Technopark» (Free Economic Zone) in the Atyrau region of Kazakhstan.

There will be about 2,000 jobs created at the site of the new production facility at the construction period stage, and more than 700 job positions at the stage of the facility’s operation.
The planned capacity of the enterprise will reach up to 180 000 tonnes of butadiene and butadiene rubbers per year.
Alik Aydarbayev noted:
  • In accordance with the Development Strategy our company seeks to expand the value chain of the company’s products and is actively developing the petrochemical industry in Kazakhstan
  • Establishment of a joint venture between KazMunayGaz and TATNEFT is the evidence of this
  • I am sure that the project will contribute to the establishment of partnership relations between Kazakhstan and Tatarstan, and will also diversify the economy of our country
The shares of KazMunayGas and TATNEFT in the project will amount to 25 % and 75 %, respectively.

It is assumed that raw materials will be supplied from the Tengiz and Korolev fields in Kazakhstan.
The plans provide for finished products to be sent to a tyre manufacturing factory in the Karaganda region, as well as for export to European countries, Russia, China, Turkey, etc.
