MRC -- National oil company KazMunayGas (KMG) plans to purchase services for organizing charter flights for a period of 5 years through 2028, the company told Interfax.
KMG's purchase of Charter flight organization services is for a 5-year period from 2024 to 2028," KMG said.
The company said that charter flights would be used in the absence of regular passenger flights to quickly solve business and production problems, including during emergencies and accidents.
"In most cases, when business trips are expected and planned in advance, the company uses regular flights on air carriers such as Air Astana, SCAT, Qazaq Air and a number of others, as well rail services," KMG said.
At the same time, the company emphasized that payment for charter services would be made upon delivery.
"In other words, if there is no need for a charter flight, then the financial resources of KazMunayGas are not used," the company said.
Earlier, the Protenge telegram channel reported that KMG had placed an application for charter flight services worth 1.6 billion tenge.
We remind, Kazakhstan intends to boost oil deliveries through the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route or TITR to 3 million tonnes within two years. President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in 2022 asked for oil transportation through the Trans-Caspian corridor to be increased. KazMunayGas and the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) entered into an agreement providing for the shipment of 1.5 million tonnes of raw materials per year from the Tengiz field to Baku for further pumping through the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline.
