Tengizchevroil is the largest energy company operating in Kazakhstan. It was originally formed in 1993 and has various partners: KazMunayGas, Chevron Overseas Company, Exxon Mobil Kazakhstan Ventures Inc. and Lukarco B.V. It also owns one of the world’s top ten fields: Tengiz. The U.S. partner helped increase output from 1 million tons per year in 1993 to 13.5 million tons today. By instituting best practices and improving drill technology, the company’s production will double by 2007. The goal is to bring Kazakh exports to three million barrels per day (mbd), which would be an impressive figure for a country of 15 million people.
