Further to the Company's report on the GTU-3 re-start project status in its operational update on the 22 August 2023, the Company is pleased to announce that it has now safely and successfully completed the re-start of its c.$750 million state-of-the-art GTU-3 gas plant, with 2.5 billion cubic metres per annum gas processing capacity. The Company has completed the modifications and other works on GTU-3 subsequent to its commissioning and startup in 2019.

"The flawless re-start of GTU-3 is a testament to the superb skill, dedication and team effort by our engineering and operations teams. This is an important milestone for the Company as it demonstrates the operational excellence of our combined 4.2 bcma gas process infrastructure in North West Kazakhstan, and it is now ready to receive third-party gas, in addition to receiving the feedstock from Ural Oil & Gas LLP expected to start in Q4 2023."
