TCO is developing another major expansion of Tengiz production that will produce significant numbers of jobs and large-scale use of Kazakhstani goods and services


The Future Growth Project and Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP-WPMP) are being constructed simultaneously to realize significant efficiencies and cost savings. 

  • FGP, based on TCO’s highly-successful Sour Gas Injection-Second Generation Project (SGI-SGP) expansion project, will expand production by approximately 12 million tonnes per year (260,000 barrels per day). 
  • WPMP will keep the existing Tengiz plants full by lowering the flowing well head pressures and boosting the pressure to the six existing processing trains. 

The main FGP-WPMP equipment will be fabricated in Kazakhstan, South Korea and Italy and pre-assembled into modules for transportation to Tengiz and final assembly.

In 1Q 2016, TCO spent over $100 million on Kazakhstani goods and services for FGP-WPMP
