  • The Caspian Pipeline Consortium continued to receive crude oil from shippers during the power restrictions in Kazakhstan this week according to Interfax reports but at a slowed pace.
  • “The equipment of the CPC facilities is intact, at present all oil pumping stations are operating normally," the consortium said.
  • The group said yesterday - "There were no restrictions on the acceptance of oil from suppliers, all the volumes proposed by shippers were accepted for delivery."
