BMI's latest Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan petrochemicals report provides detailed analysis of planned projects in these two hydrocarbons-rich countries, which represent virgin territory for the global petrochemicals industry. The report assesses market size and potential as well as the latest trends in output at established facilities. It also details the strategies employed by leading players in the region as they seek to overcome relatively high infrastructural and political risks.

Kazakhstan's vast oil and gas resources reflect latent potential for rapid and significant expansion of petrochemicals facilities over the medium to long term, while Uzbekistan hopes to maximise the value of its gas potential through increased supply to the petrochemicals segment.

The development of Kazakhstan's petrochemicals industry will come from foreign partnerships participating in a mixture of world-scale greenfield developments, as well as the rehabilitation and modernisation of existing facilities. Progress was being made in 2012, with LG Chem entering into a formal agreement to build KPI's ethane-fed petrochemicals complex in Atyrau - with capacities of 800,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) READ MORE >
