Full commissioning remains on track to be completed by the end of Q3 2019.
Kai-Uwe Kessel, Chief Executive Officer of Nostrum Oil & Gas, commented: “I am pleased to announce the start of the hot commissioning stage and first gas into GTU3. This marks a significant milestone for Nostrum. We now have a clear line of sight to full commissioning and being able to move all our raw gas production through GTU3. This will allow us to strip more LPG from our raw gas than we can today, leading to better margins. GTU3 will also help us to further optimise operational costs at field site with one control room managing the entire field. This step brings us closer to completing a unique set of world class infrastructure in the pre-Caspian basin in North West Kazakhstan.”
