Published by

The Kazakh Ministry of Energy, KazMunayGas (KMG) and Eni have signed a protocol of direct negotiations to grant the subsoil use right for exploration and production of hydrocarbons within joint operations on Abay, an offshore area in the Kazakhstani sector of the Caspian Sea.

The Abay block is located in the northern part of the Kazakhstan sector of the Caspian Sea, approximately 50 km from the coast in a water depth of less than 10 m. The block is estimated to have significant potential for hydrocarbon resources.

Eni and KMG will each hold a 50% share in the Abay block and Eni will carry KazMunayGas’s share of the costs during the exploration period. The block will be operated by the Isatay Operating Co., equally owned by Eni and KMG, that also operates the Isatay block, in order to maximise synergies and operation efficiencies.
