For the purpose of fields and associated infrastructure development Aktau Petrolium  has carried out a number of major projects, including construction of collector systems to gather well production, infield motor roads, systems for water injection into reservoirs for the purpose of reservoir pressure maintenance, oil storage tanks, gas turbine units to provide own needs on power energy, as well as drilling and construction of wells.

In 2013 "Aktau Petrolium constructed a 10 inch gas pipeline Kyzylkiya-Aryskum, put into operation an oil gathering system at Aryskum and Kyzylkiya fields, modified the reservoir pressure maintenance system at Kumkol field and also expanded the field camp at Aryskum field to provide accommodation to 200 additional people.

In 2012 gas utilization facilities were commissioned at Kumkol, Aryskum, Kyzylkiya and Maibulak fields: the works related to the gas re-injection at Kumkol field, the gas transportation system from Kyzylkiya to Aryskum field and the gas injection system at Aryskum field were completed. All construction and installation works were also fully completed under the gas utilization project at Maibulak field. On five sites of the gas gathering system at Kumkol field the construction, installation and pre-commissioning operations were completed at the beginning of the 2nd quarter, 2013.

Within the frameworks of the gas utilization program Aktau Petrolium  invested more than 143 mln USD into its implementation in years 2012-2015. The Company was among the pioneers that started to develop and implement the gas utilization program in Kazakhstan.

Investments made in the associated gas utilization project:

- Associated gas utilization facilities at KAM fields (Kyzylkiya, Aryskum, Maybulak)

- Associated gas gathering and utilization facilities at Kumkol

In 2014 together with JV JSC “Turgai Petroleum” the construction of the two additional gas turbine plants with the total capacity of 50 mW had started at Kumkol oilfield. For today this project was fully implemented, and the total capacity of the Kumkol field gas turbine power station was 100mW.
