Astana, Kazakhstan, Dec.12 By Daniyar Mukhtarov – Trend: KazMunaiGas Exploration Production JSC (production subsidiary of KazMunaiGas NC JSC – KMG EP) in 2015 will reduce its production costs by 14 percent, the company said.

"Capital expenditures in 2015 are planned at $115 billion KZT (about $621 million), which is 14 percent lower than the planned expenditures in 2015, according to the business plan approved a year earlier," said a statement.

Cost reduction is planned mainly at the cost of decline of investment, which will not affect the level of production.

KazMunaiGas Exploration Production JSC (KMG) at a meeting of the Board of Directors approved the budget for 2015, taking into account the price per barrel of Brent crude oil at $70 per barrel.
