Highlights

  • The country targets a share of 15% of renewables in the power mix in 2030 and of 50% of renewables and alternative energies by 2050.
  • The country plans to be carbon neutral by 2060.
  • State-owned Samruk-Energy is the largest power producer, with 30% of total production.
  • Around 60% of oil production is provided by two companies: TCO and KMG.
  • Kazatomprom is the largest uranium producer with 55% of production.
  • Kazakhstan has abundant energy reserves. It holds around 15% of the world's uranium resources and is the largest producer.
  • Gas production has been decreasing rapidly since 2018 (-10%/year).
  • Almost 90% of the power mix is made of thermal energy (63% of which for coal).
  • The price of oil products is low and quite independent of trends in crude oil prices.
  • Coal supplies almost half of the energy consumption.
  • Buildings absorb 45% of the final consumption.
  • A total of 107 exploration & development licences for oil and gas blocks will be relocated or sold.
  • Sveving Energy plans to develop 40 GW of solar & wind capacities by 2032 to feed a large hydrogen plant.

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    The Ministry of Energy oversees the energy sector. It was created in 2014 following the merger of three Ministries ("Oil and Gas", "Industry and New Technologies" and "Environment and Water Resources"). This supersized Ministry was created to tackle the declining exports to Russia and the stagnant domestic oil production.

  • Energy Supply

    Resources:

    Kazakhstan has abundant energy reserves. They amount to about 4.1 Gt for oil, around 1 800 bcm for gas and 25.6 Gt for coal (8th largest coal reserves in the world, end of 2022). About 70% of the Kazakhstani oil potential is located in the west of the country, particularly in the Caspian Sea (Kashagan).

  • Energy Prices

    Gas:

    In 2022, household and industry prices decreased by 6.7% and 6.5%, respectively (to US$0.55c/kWh and US$0.59c/kWh), after a sharp increase in 2021 for household prices (+37%). Between 2015 and 2020, these prices decreased significantly, by 15%/year for industry and by 9.5%/year for households; both reached US$0.43/kWh in 2020.
