The petrochemical industry has a high potential to attract foreign direct investment

The raw orientation

The output of high added value (e.g., new synthetic materials)

Natural, associated petroleum gas and gas condensate deposits - a valuable raw material for gas chemistry

methane
Ethane
propane
Bhutan

*Gas from Caspian sea fields contains 9-13% of ethane.

For the profitable development of the petrochemical content of ethane in the gas must be at 8%.

Prospect of starting production in Kazakhstan in view of difference between the global demand and supply of nitrogen fertilizers reduction

The main markets for fertilizer (Russian Federation and China) are located near Republic of Kazakhstan

Remoteness of countries with the greatest increase in production capacity makes the final cost of export from Republic of Kazakhstan more competitive

STATE SUPPORT:

Maintenance with raw materials of strategically important investment projects

Granting the right for acquisition of the liquefied petroleum gas as raw materials to industrial consumers by state-regulated price
The pricing mechanism for gas commodity for investment projects using gas as feedstock** according to the formula: supply price of gas + the minimum level of margins for national operator (7%)

Important: the investment project must be included in the list of investment projects for the production of petrochemicals of the Ministry of energy of Kazakhstan***

1. The law of RK "On gas and gas supply"

2. The order of the Minister of energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan from December 15, 2014 № 209 "On approval of Rules for determining the maximum wholesale prices of sales of commercial gas in the domestic market of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the marginal prices of liquefied petroleum gas sold in the plan of supply of liquefied petroleum gas on the domestic market of the Republic of Kazakhstan out of electronic trading platforms"

3. The order of the Minister of energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated April 29, 2020 No. 165 "On approval of Rules of forming the list of investment projects on production of petrochemical products"

DOCUMENTS

for inclusion of the project in the List of investment projects on production of petrochemical products

application for inclusion of investment project into the List
the schedule of the implementation of the investment project
feasibility study of investment project

evidence:

the right to use the licensed technology (the agreement or other document governing the right to use)
the experience of operating similar facilities and (or) realization of products in the major markets in the project the proportion of local content

Investors as state support can also get incentives in the form of in-kind grant customs and tax exemptions, investment subsidies, having signed an investment contract with the investment Committee of the Ministry of foreign Affairs.

An alternative mechanism of state support are special economic zone.

In the framework of the special economic zone investors can obtain land with all the infrastructure, tax and customs privileges. Government financed construction of infrastructure, this will reduce to 20% of capital and 15% of operating costs.

In both cases, the opportunity attracting foreign labor force in the simplified mode.
