Tengizchevroil - Future Growth Project (FGP)


Project overview

Tengizchevroil (TCO)’s Future Growth Project is a joint venture partnership formed in 1993 to develop the Tengiz oilfield in western Kazakhstan. Current partners in TCO include Chevron (50%), KazMunaiGas (KMG) (20%), ExxonMobil (25%) and LukArco (5%). The Tengiz oilfield area includes the ‘super giant’ Tengiz field, the smaller Korolev field and several exploratory prospects. The Tengiz and Korolev fields have potential for an estimated 750 million to 1.1 billion metric tonnes (six billion to nine billion barrels) of recoverable oil. Tengiz is one of the world's deepest developed super giant oil fields, with the top of the reservoir at 3,850m. Crude production in 2013 was 27 million metric tonnes (216 million barrels).

TCO has operated oil and gas production facilities at Tengiz since 1993, and since that time has executed a number of expansion and upgrade developments.

The FGP is the next planned major expansion of the existing facilities. The FGP is intended to increase crude production by 12 million metric tonnes per year.
