Kazakhstan and Eurasia Form New Oil Consortium in a Multi-Billion Caspian Project
Oil companies from Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Italy have teamed up to form a consortium for the exploration and exploitation of what is expected to be a new “giant” located in the heart of the northern Caspian tectonic structure. The project, if successful and if market demand remains unchanged, should prolong Kazakhstan's position as a global oil supplier from 2040 to 2080.

Quarterly ForecastsOct 10, 2016 | 00:09 GMT
If the study of geopolitics focuses on the structural forces shaping the international system, then domestic elections only rarely matter. Leaders tend to bend to their environment, not the other way around. And yet in the final months of 2016 the United States, still the world's only superpower, will choose a president in an election that will shape U.S. foreign policy more than usual.

OPEC members at the International Energy Forum in Algiers agreed in principle to a reduction in oil production, but many facets of the deal remain unresolved.
For OPEC, a Production Cut Aims to Head off Further Price Drops
OPEC has finally reached a tentative deal to cut crude oil production, but it does not mean much yet. OPEC members settled on the outline of an agreement Sept. 28 on the sidelines of the International Energy Forum in Algiers. Terms include cutting crude oil production from roughly 33.24 million barrels per day to between 32.5 million and 33 million bpd. The cut is marginal, but if enacted, it would be the first for the group since the height of the global financial crisis in 2008. It would also mark the cartel's first coordinated response since oil prices began tumbling in June 2014.

In Kazakhstan, Saving the State Oil Company May Devastate the Sector
In Kazakhstan, Saving the State Oil Company May Devastate the Sector
The minority shareholders of Kazakhstan's lucrative energy firm, KazMunaiGas Exploration and Production (KMG EP), will vote Aug. 3 on whether or not to sell their shares to the firm's parent company, effectively consolidating the two. The parent company, KazMunaiGas (KMG), is fully owned by the state and is involved in some capacity in most of the country's major energy projects, including Kazakhstan's largest oil fields, transportation firms, refineries and sales groups. In 2004, the Kazakh government established KMG EP to act as a separate exploration and production company. KMG currently owns 57 percent of it, but KMG EP has been fairly autonomous since its foundation, a fact that has at times put the two at odds.

Kazakhstan's Energy Sector Will Find Relief, Eventually
Low energy prices, flat production, project delays and aging fields will continue to plague Kazakhstan's energy sector in 2016. However, a series of projects will be in development in 2016 that could give Kazakhstan a boost in production and exports by the end of the year and into 2017. These developments will not solve the energy sector's overall problems, which stem from low energy prices, but they will give Kazakhstan a slight reprieve.

Kazakhstan Confronts Economic Uncertainty
Since 2000, Kazakhstan has greatly benefited from and has come to depend on its energy wealth. However, that dependence has hurt the Kazakh economy and will continue to do so in 2016. Astana will therefore promote dramatic policies in the hope of improving the Central Asian country's economic outlook and preventing social instability.
