Kashagan Experimental Development Project

The Kashagan field is the largest oilfield discovered in the North Caspian Sea PSA contract area. It is considered to be the most important oil discovery worldwide since the Prudhoe Bay in Alaska’s North Slope in 1968.

It is located offshore, about 80 kilometers from Atyrau and extends over a surface of approximately 75 kilometers by 45 kilometers.

The reservoir was deposited in the shallow marine water depositional environment some 350 million years ago. It is currently estimated that the field holds up to 35 billion barrels of oil in place of which 9 billion are potentially recoverable. With associated gas re-injection, it is estimated that recoverable reserves could increase to 11bn.

Kashagan’s development represents a complex combination of coordinated offshore and onshore activities, including survey, construction and commissioning, drilling, logistics, development and production.
