We consider it a decision taken following very complex steps and analyses, in which KMGI and the group companies have actively and transparently participated, for the purpose of clarifying all relevant aspects.
”This decision consolidates the local holdings of the KazMunayGas group and opens way for further investments required for the development of the group’s local activities, with positive impact over economic growth, maintaining and developing the workforce, the group’s constant contribution to public budgets, as well as, in general, to the development of the local business environment.”
