The gas chemical industry development issues were considered at the Government meeting chaired by Prime Minister Alikhan Smailov of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
In particular, they discussed the project for the construction of an integrated gas chemical complex for the production of polyethylene, the final investment decision on which must be taken in 2024. As Magzum Mirzagaliyev, Chairman of the Board of NC KazMunayGas JSC, pointed out, the successful implementation of the project requires the extension of the term of the SEZ «NIPT», and the construction of the missing external infrastructure.
Following the discussion, the Prime Minister instructed the authorized bodies to work out a solution to the issues voiced. In addition, he expressed the need to provide within the legislation of Kazakhstan the possibility of applying international standards in the design and construction of large oil and gas chemical facilities that use foreign licensed technologies.
