Under the terms of the contract, ChTPZ Group will provide their customer, Beineu – Shymkent Gas Pipeline, with 1,067-mm pipes (wall width 11.9mm) with three-layer corrosion-resistant outer coating made of X70 MMK steel.

The pipeline’s first section was launched in 2013; the second section is expected to be completed by 2016.
