By bne IntelliNews September 23, 2010
Emergency Ministry officials in Kazakhstan stated that two blasts ruptured a pipeline in western Kazakhstan carrying natural gas to neighboring Russia. Deliveries through the route were suspended but no casualties have been reported in the explosion. On the other hand it was reported that overall fuel supplies to the region were not affected as gas was supplied via an alternative route from Turkmenistan. The pipeline is operated by Intergas Central Asia, a subsidiary of state-owned gas transportation company KazTransGas, part of KazMunaiGaz. Intergas Central Asia governs a system of pipelines in Kazakhstan with total length of more than 11,000 km.
