As the Russian embargo on gasoline export from Kazakhstan to Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) has been lifted, Kazakhstan expects to start shipments to Kyrgyzstan in November. Approximately 300,000-400,000 tonnes will be sent by the end of the year, with a forecast of approximately 1.2 million tonnes in 2019.

Russia and Kazakhstan signed the protocol  regarding the changes to the agreement:.Kazakh and Russian Ministers of Energy Kanat Bozumbayev and Alexander Novak inked the document at the  Energy Week 2018 international forum.

Kazakh gasoline export also became possible after the country modernised its three major refineries. The facilities now produce more products and their quality meets stringent environmental standards.

Gasoline export may begin in two-three weeks. Kazakhstan is prepared to send oil products to neighbouring countries in small batches, approximately 10,000 tonnes at market price.

Kazakhstan plans to sign an additional agreement with other Central Asian nations to define the volumes of gasoline it can supply to each country-importer.
