"Adyrna" national portal reports that the connection to the gas outlet has been stopped at the Kashagan field.
According to the company's representatives, it was caused by rusting of the metal. Repair work may last 7-10 days.
"On August 2, at the Karabatan plant, the Sezbeks found out that there was gas in 12 lines (pipes) going to the slug catcher. In one of them, the pipe burst," the report said.
Now the commission is conducting an inspection and checking other networks as well. Oil production may stop for a week.
