:: Country Overview Kazakhstan has rich oil and gas reserves in its western regions and is one of the world's largest oil producers.

Ten years ago, Kazakhstan became the first of the CIS countries to receive an investment-grade rating from the international rating agencies such as Moody's Investors Service, Standard & Poor's, Fitch Ratings and A.M. Best Company. The country is rated as "BBB" and "Stable" in all cases.

Total international reserves of Kazakhstan, including foreign exchange reserves of the National Bank and the assets of the National Fund, showed 4.3% growth for the period between January and March 2014 and reached $99.3 billion.

:: Government Regulation of Petrochemical Industry Creating a world-class petrochemical industry in Kazakhstan is one of the main priorities in economic diversification through comprehensive and deep processing of hydrocarbons.

Today, as part of the State Program for Rapid Industrial and Innovation Development of Kazakhstan in 2010-2014 years and the Strategic Plan of the Ministry of Oil and Gas of the Republic of Kazakhstan for 2011-2015, construction of world-class petrochemical plants is underway.
  • Construction of Integrated Gas and Chemical Complex investment project in the Region of Atyrau (production capacity of 500,000 tons of polypropylene per year and 800,000 tons of polyethylene per year);
  • Construction of the Aromatic Hydrocarbons Production Complex at the Atyrau Refinery investment project (production capacity of 133,000 tons of benzene per year and 496,000 tons of p-xylene per year);
  • Production of Road Bitumen at the Aktau Plastics Plant investment project (production capacity of 400,000 tons of road bitumen per year).
