Also, the process of consolidation and optimization of operations as well as the integration of Rompetrol Group into the structure of KMG’s group of companies have been completed. Thus, all necessary preconditions were created to continue KMG’s expansion plans not only in the Black Sea region, but also in Western Europe,” stressed Lyazzat Kiinov, President of JSC NC KazMunayGas, at the meeting of the company’s management body.
