Russian oil company Lukoil has signed an agreement with the Kazakh oil firm KazMunayGas over the future obligations of the two companies on the Al-Farabi Project in the Kazakh Sector of the Caspian Sea.

Al-Farabi license block is located in the Kazakh Sector of the Caspian Sea, 100 - 130 kilometers away from the shore with the water depth of 150-500 meters. The license block covers over six thousand square kilometers. The water zone remains ice-free all year round.

According to Lukoil, the agreement signed between the two companies defines the rights and obligations of Lukoil and KMG as future license holders under the Al-Farabi project ( formerly I-P-2 license block). 

The agreement was signed by President of Lukoil Vagit Alekperov and Chairman of the Management Board of JSC NC KazMunayGas (KMG) Alik Aidarbayev.

"This is a next step after the principles agreement, concluded in June of 2019. The parties intend to proceed with signing a contract on exploration and production of hydrocarbons, that will come into force as soon as KMG receives the license and the parties close the deal to establish a joint venture with 50.01% (KMG) and 49.99% (LUKOIL) shares," Lukoil said.

The two companies are already partners in other major projects such as - Karachaganak, Tengiz, Kumkol, and in the oil transportation project of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium.
