“Another key step in the domestic oil and gas industry is construction of a new refinery. A group was set up on the instructions of the president to develop a draft feasibility study. The oil refinery location and its parameters will be defined in the second half of the year. Currently we are in negotiations with private companies, and there are investors willing to participate in refinery construction. We focus on financing issues now,” energy minister Kanat Bozumbayev said.
