An oil-well cement plant is set to be launched in Kyzylorda region in December

An oil-well cement plant is set to be launched in Kyzylorda region in December as part of the Industrial and Innovative Development Program. Its cost is about 66 billion tenge. The plant has a vast potential and a capacity of producing one million tonnes of products per year. This type of cement is in high demand during construction works in oil and gas, as well as nuclear and space industries. The enterprise extracts sand, dolomite, lime and gravel in Shieli district. The volume of imported construction supplies in the region will significantly drop due to the implementation of the project. Moreover, new products are expected to reduce the price of cement in the domestic market. The finished products of the joint Kazakh-Chinese enterprise will be exported to Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan. The staff training is also underway.
