Oil and Gas
Kazakhstan is a major oil producer in the world. It has the second-largest oil reserves, as well as the second-largest oil production among the former Soviet republics after Russia.
The main oil and gas fields, which amount to around 200 deposits, are located in Western Kazakhstan. The number of companies and amount of foreign direct investment in this sector increase annually. Since oil and gas sector is heavily regulated in Kazakhstan the companies operating in this area face the wide range of legal and regulatory matters not only during their day-to-day operations, but also when performing M&A transactions and subsoil use rights transfers related transactions.
