The incident at a gas pipeline will not affect commercial output at the largest offshore field of Kashagan located in the Kazakh sector of the Caspian Sea, minister of oil and gas Uzakbai Karabalin told journalists on the sidelines of a parliamentary session.

"It shouldn't. We have already checked the capacities at the plant and wells. They are quite enough to ensure the commercial output level," he said in response to the question if the production stoppage at Kashagan would influence the start of commercial output scheduled for October. 

"We are more and more convinced that at large the whole system works ok. There have been some failures like a sensor showing nothing, or something wrong with pressure. In that case everything stops and gets entirely checked, the sensor is either replaced or gets adjusted. If we eventually bed in details now, the whole system and the field will be able to reach commercial output level. Today we see no particular reasons not to achieve 75,000 barrels in October," Mr Karabalin added.
