Next year, along with the official part of the Atyrau Oil and Gas 2019 exhibition, the business program includes seminars aimed at highlighting and researching the main trends in the oil and gas industry. The main theme of the business program of the exhibition, digitalization and investment horizons, has already been determined.

According to the Ministry of Energy of Kazakhstan, the revival of the Kazakhstan oilfield service market will begin in 2019. This is primarily due to the continuation of the project to expand the Tengiz field.

In the first 9 months of 2018, crude oil production in Kazakhstan amounted to 57.6 million tons, which is 6.5% more than a year earlier. Of these, more than 60% of the production is traditionally accounted for the key oil region of the country - the Atyrau region. Thus, at the Tengiz field, crude oil production is 21.5 million tons, more than 1 million tons of liquefied gas, 6.9 billion cubic meters of dry gas, and also 1.8 million tons of sulfur have been sold. According to forecasts of the Ministry of Energy of Kazakhstan, oil production at Kashagan in 2018 may exceed 12 million tons.

In addition, TCO has launched two major projects in Tengiz since 2016: Future Expansion and Wellhead Pressure Management, which are scheduled to be completed in 2022. Such projects provide an opportunity for the development of related projects in various sectors of the economy, from engineering, service, transportation to construction.

In this regard, it is relevant to conduct parallel events at the site of Atyrau Oil and Gas 2019. So the North-Caspian Regional Building and Interior Exhibition AtyrauBuild 2019 will be held at the same time. Exhibition venue: “Exhibition Center”, 79 Abelikayir Khan Avenue, Atyrau, Kazakhstan.
