According to him, the initial cost of the 1st stage of the project stands at KZT 267,3 billion.
The 1st stage is to embrace 171 rural settlements. Administrations of Karaganda, Akmola regions and Astana cities have already developed infrastructure construction roadmaps taking into account the period of construction of the main gas pipeline and regional networks.
As earlier reported, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev announced decision to lay down a gas pipeline from Kyzylorda region to Astana this March representing five social initiatives at the joint sitting of the Kazakh Parliament.
The Saryarka pipeline will connect in the south with the Beineu-Bozoi-Shymkent (BBS) pipeline, which carries gas from fields in western Kazakhstan to urbanised areas in the southeast. The project will help tackle pollution levels in Astana, free up more coal for export and help Kazakhstan monetise its ample gas resources more efficiently.
