ASTANA, June 19 (Itar-Tass) — Kazakhstan will supply some 1.5 million tons of oil to Russia to compensate its losses from duty-free supplies of crude oil to the Pavlodar petro-chemical plant (PNKhZ), Kazakh Minister of Oil and Gas Sauat Mynbayev told journalist on Tuesday, adding that “an agreement on this will be effective since the beginning of January 2014.”
Last week, according to the results of talks with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Kazakh Prime Minister Karim Masimov informed journalists on an agreement on duty-free supplies of six million tons of Russian oil to the PNKhZ.
Masimov said that Kazakhstan would compensate Russia’s losses from duty-free supplies.
The Pavlodar petrochemical plant is the biggest in Kazakhtan engaged in oil refining, as well as production and sale of oil products. The enterprise’s designed capacity is 7.5 million tons of oil a year.
There are two major refineries in Kazakhstan - in western Atyrau and southern Shymkent.
