The MOU allows the parties to explore opportunities to improve the efficiency of oil production and increase production from the mature Emba fields of KMG EP’s 100% subsidiary EmbaMunaiGas JSC (“EMG”).

We hope that our partnership with Petrofac will allow us to accomplish optimization of production and improve oil recovery in EMG mature fields.”
