According to earlier reports, Russia’s oil major Rosneft and Kazakhstan’s Kazmunaigaz and Kaztransoil signed a preliminary agreement on oil pumping via Kazakhstan back in November. Rosneft undertook to pump seven million tonnes of oil a year to China starting from 2014, Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin told journalists back then. Oil will be pumped from Kazakhstan via the Atasu-Alashankou oil pipeline linking Kazakhstan and China. China is interested in the Kazakh route, since its CNPC (China National Petroleum Corporation) is a 50-percent owner of the Atasu-Alashankou oil pipeline which is not operated to its full capacity.
