ii) Potentials for Cooperation

China and Kazakhstan have promoted a rapid expansion of commerce and partnership over economic development, especially in harnessing Kazakhstan's oil, natural gas, minerals and other major energy resources. Owing to rapidly expanding domestic energy needs, China has sought to obtain a leading role in cultivating and developing energy industries in Kazakhstan. Along with operating four smaller oil fields, the China National Petroleum Corporation in 2005 bought Petrokazakhstan, that was the former Soviet Union's largest independent oil company, for USD 4.18 billion and spent another USD 700 million on a pipeline that will take the oil to the Chinese border. Petrokazakhstan was the largest foreign purchase ever by a Chinese company. In 2009 China lent $10 billion to Kazakhstan and gained a stake in KMG.

China’s CNPC has aggressively expanded its presence in Kazakhstan over the recent years. It owns 67% of integrated oil company PetroKazakhstan, 86% of producer AkhtobeMunaiGaz, 50% of another big producer MangustaiMunaiGaz (MMG), and a 50% direct share in three oil fields.

CNPC’s extensive presence in Kazakhstan has been built up through a complex series of transactions that have resulted in the company controlling around 20% of the country’s oil production. Uniquely among foreign companies in Kazakhstan, its operations are mostly integrated, with an upstream, midstream and downstream presence. Its involvement in regional pipeline projects and the proximity of its core region of Xinjiang in China will ensure that Kazakhstan remains a vital part of CNPC’s operations.

CNPC is likely to continue growing its Kazakh operations both organically and through acquisitions as and when suitable targets become available. As well as increasing oil output, CNPC’s main production to its main markets in China.
