Eni has entered into agreements with KazMunaiGas to develop renewable energy, hydrogen, and biofuel projects in the country.
Claudio Descalzi, CEO of Eni, met with Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and Askar Mamin, Prime Minister of Kazakhstan.
Eni and KazMunaiGas inked cooperation agreements at the conference to develop renewable energy, hydrogen, and biofeedstock projects in Kazakhstan, thereby expanding and broadening their historic partnership’s scope to include the energy transition.
Eni takes another practical step forward today with these agreements, demonstrating the company’s commitment to a just energy transition and decarbonization, while also contributing to the country’s carbon neutrality targets. Eni is a prominent player in Kazakhstan’s renewable energy market, through its local renewable subsidiary ArmWind LLP, with two wind farms and one photovoltaic plant totaling around 150MW.
Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi said: “The agreements signed today enhance the perimeter of our historic collaboration with Kazakhstan, further directing it towards a low carbon emission future. Besides the wind and solar activities, Eni will leverage all its proprietary technologies, developed over the last few years and focused on energy transition. I wish to thank the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Government and the State companies for their continuous collaboration towards reaching the Country’s and Eni’s decarbonization targets”.
