OMV Petrom completes divestment of Kazakhstan production assets

Published by
Oilfield Technology,


OMV Petrom has announced the closing of the sale transaction for its 100% shareholding in Kom-Munai LLP (KOM) and Tasbulat Oil Corp. LLP (TOC) in Kazakhstan to MAGNETIC OIL LIMITED. KOM and TOC hold the production licenses for four onshore fields: Komsomolskoe, Aktas, Tasbulat and Turkmenoi.

The transaction is part of OMV Petrom’s strategy to focus its regional expansion towards the Black Sea area in search of the most profitable barrels. OMV Petrom announced the signing of the transaction on 29 December 2020. The impact from the transaction on OMV Petrom’s operational indicators is limited, as Kazakhstan operations represented only a small part of OMV Petrom’s overall portfolio. In 2020, the cumulated daily production of the four fields was 6.76 kboe/d, representing 4.7% of the Group's production, while the 1P reserves of 21.8 million boe accounted for 4.6% of Group reserves.

All four fields are located in the Mangistau region of West Kazakhstan near the Caspian Sea. The four onshore fields cover a total area of 86.52 km2, including approximately 75 wells, production facilities and 200 km of pipelines.
