Electricity and Nuclear Industry

From its independence, Kazakhstan has implemented strong measures aimed at energy sector reforms. Almost all power plants have been privatized to enhance the overall effectiveness of the sector. Market reforms, aimed at stable and balanced growth of the national economy through effective development of the electric power industry, accompanied the privatization process.

Abundant raw material resources of Kazakhstan, namely significant coal, uranium and natural gas reserves as well as oil deposits still being explored, serve as substantial potential for further development of the country’s power industry. According to the official website of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan ranks eighth in coal reserves, second in uranium reserves and ninth in oil reserves worldwide.

Energy and natural resources are the basis for economic stability of Kazakhstan. We advise major investors and local companies on issues of sector restructuring and privatization of existing power generating facilities. The need to construct new facilities offers opportunities to foreign private investors, who come to us and receive operative and meaningful consultations, advice and recommendations based on our in-depth knowledge of the sector.
