The construction of the Saryarka gas pipeline is planned
Development of regional gasification is one of the five social initiatives of President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev. In this regard, the construction of the Saryarka gas pipeline is planned. It will pass from Kyzylorda through Zhezkazgan, Karagandy and Temirtau to Astana with a possibility of further gasification of Kokshetau and Petropavl. As a result, nearly three million residents in the northern and central regions will be provided with gas. The construction of the Saryarka gas pipeline is scheduled to begin before the end of the year. It will be built near the compressor stations of the Beineu-Bozoi-Shymkent gas pipeline in the Kyzylorda region. In the first stage, over 1,000 kilometres of the gas mainline are planned to pass through three regions to Astana.
AZAMAT YERMAGAMBETOV, ENGINEER:
- Design and estimate documentation for the Saryarka gas pipeline has successfully passed the state examination. We will announce the tender for construction and installation works.
The compressor station, which was commissioned in the Syrdarya region, increased the throughput capacity of the Beineu-Bozoi-Shymkent gas pipeline to 10 billion cubic meters. (It is equipped with the latest technology). Compressor stations will be built in Zhezkazgan and Temirtau for gas pumping.
TALGAT MENEYEV, DIRECTOR, COMPRESSOR STATION:
- We receive natural gas through the main gas pipeline and our main goal is to compress this gas, which we received from other compressor stations, and send it to the destination point.
YERLAN ZHOLAMANOV, DEPUTY DIRECTOR, ENERGY DEPARTMENT:
- A project in Astana is being developed. A new thermal power plant is being built in the capital. After all the work, there is a possibility of connecting the gas. Of course, first of all, the ecological situation in Astana will improve.
The construction of the Saryarka gas pipeline will be completed at the end of next year.
