About Association

The establishment of the PetroMining Association was preceded by the consolidation of independent oil-producing organizations of Kazakhstan into an initiative group with a permanent advisory council to promote the interests of OPOs at the governmental level. The effective and well-coordinated work of the initiative group of OPOs resulted in the establishment of the PetroMining Association in 2023.

We aim to promote a responsible oil industry, respect for justice for oil-producing organizations and equal rights. Today, there are more than 90 oil-producing organizations in Kazakhstan playing a significant role in the production of oil and gas condensate.

In 2022, the share of OPOs in the country's total oil and gas condensate production totalled a significant 21%, equivalent to 17.6 million tonnes. OPOs have made a significant input into the country's economy, contributing KZT 2.4 trillion to the country's budget in the period from 2020 to 2022. OPOs provide more than 43,000 jobs for Kazakhstanis in 5 regions of the country.
