At the government session chaired by Prime Minister Askar Mamin, Minister of Energy Nurlan Nogayev reported on preparations for the upcoming autumn-winter period.

According to Nogayev, in general, the heating period in the republic was stable.

“The winter maximum load was observed on Jan. 9, 2020, and amounted to 15,182 MW, which is 4% more than last year,” the minister of energy informed.

Today 226 energy enterprises (or 87%) have received certificates of readiness for work in the autumn-winter period 2019-2020. Thirty-four energy enterprises that did not receive a preparedness passport have been held administratively liable.

“For such enterprises, there are high risks of power outages due to their unavailability for the heating season. However, they continue to carry out their activities due to the absence of prohibitions. Due to the low size of penalties, energy companies are evading receiving a passport for readiness for the heating period. This issue is constantly raised by the ministry, but does not find support,” Nogayev noted.

In 2019, 3,996 technological violations were committed in the Unified Electric Power System of Kazakhstan. In comparison with the same period last year, the number of technological violations decreased by 34 or 1.3%, during the heating period it increased by 135 or 6%.

Also, over the past heating period, 48 cases of non-compliance by heat supply enterprises with the temperature schedules of heating networks approved by local executive bodies were noted, which is 20% less than last year.

In the past heating season, the required amount of operational fuel supply of more than 3 million tons of coal and 120 thousand tons of fuel oil was provided at energy sources.

Nogayev emphasized that in preparation for the heating season, an important issue that needs to be addressed is a significant amount of accounts payable for fuel.

“As of June 1, 2020, the debt of energy-producing organizations to KazTransGas-Aimak JSC is 6.4 billion tenge. There is also a debt of energy-producing organizations to Bogatyr-Komir LLP in the total amount of 3.3 billion tenge,” the minister said.

Today, energy enterprises are preparing for the upcoming autumn-winter period.

This year it is planned to repair 8 power units, 59 boilers, 44 turbines. At the beginning of June, work was completed at 3 power units, 5 boilers and 8 turbines. At various stages of repair work is underway at 3 power units, 21 boilers and 9 turbines. In general, repair work is carried out according to the schedule.

For the preparation of electric networks of the Unified Electric Power System of the Republic of Kazakhstan for the autumn-winter period 2020-2021, scheduled repairs of power lines with a total length of 25,828 km, as well as 429 units of high-voltage substations are planned. To date, 1,140 km of power lines and 65 substations have been repaired on electrical networks.

Nogayev also dwelled on the ongoing work on the elimination of electric networks recognized as ownerless.

According to the minister, in the framework of the implementation of the tasks identified in 51 Steps of the Plan of the Nation “100 Concrete Steps” liquidation of ownerless networks is envisaged.

“A lot of work has been done. The length of ownerless networks is significantly reduced. According to the results of the work, the length of ownerless electric networks as of January 2020 amounted to 225 km and 98 transformer substations,” Nogayev informed.

In general, the identified ownerless electric networks should be transferred to the balance of power transmission organizations by the end of 2020.

In conclusion, Nogayev outlined a number of tasks that must be completed for the successful completion of the autumn-winter period 2020-2021:

1. perform all repair work at power plants, electrical networks;

2. ensure the normative accumulation of fuel in the warehouses of energy sources;

3. to ensure debt reduction to fuel suppliers;

4. take measures to reduce receivables of utility consumers to suppliers and payables of energy supplying organizations;

5. carry out all activities for the preparation of educational facilities, health care, livelihoods, social and cultural facilities of settlements;

6. take measures to reduce the debt of household consumers;

7. The Ministries of Justice, Energy, the National Economy and National Chamber of Entrepreneurs Atameken, together with interested parties, will work out the issue of increasing fines if energy enterprises do not receive a passport for readiness for the heating period.

“The ministry, together with local executive bodies, continues to monitor the preparation of energy enterprises for the upcoming heating season,” said Energy Minister Nogayev.
