NUR-SULTAN. KAZINFORM Kazakhstan produced above 52 mln tons of oil in January-July this year, Kazinform reports.

For the past seven months the country produced 52.23 mln tons of crude and condensate that is 101.2% against the plan, though it is 98.7% to the same period of 2018,» head of the Kazakh Energy Ministry’s press service Nurlybek Zhenis said.

According to him, the decline in production was predictable due to repair works at three large oil fields.

Oil production at Kashagan, Tengiz and Karachaganak settled at 31.6 mln tons over the past seven months.
