Alikhan Smailov sets tasks for new Minister of Energy

Prime Minister Alikhan Smailov introduced the new Minister of Energy Almassadam Satkaliyev to the staff of the department and outlined the priority tasks in the energy sector for the coming period.

The Head of Government stressed that the Ministry of Energy needs to intensify work on the development of major oil and gas projects and export transportation corridors, to take measures to increase gas processing, to strengthen the heat and electricity production sector, as well as to continue the development of renewable sources.

"Recently, some problems that have been accumulating for years have become more acute. A shortage of diesel fuel, power and gas supply interruptions, accidents at heat supply facilities are all evidence of serious problems in the energy sector. All of them have to be promptly resolved," Alikhan Smailov said.

At the same time he pointed out that one of the main objectives of the Ministry is to fill the domestic market with oil products and in this connection it is necessary to ensure strict control over their production and turnover.

"The Ministry is facing a lot of complex issues, and not only the future of the fuel and energy sector, but our entire economy directly depends on their effective solution. I am sure that Almasadam Maidanovich will direct his knowledge and experience to the successful development of the energy sector. In general, we all have to execute the relevant instructions of the Head of State in a coherent and high-quality manner. I wish the new Minister and the entire team fruitful work," Prime Minister said.
