HISTORY

These days, development centers and centers of competence are high-tech companies that produce highly sophisticated products and are strongly associated with the country’s image. Today in Kazakhstan, one of such centers is ENGINEERING COMPANY KAZGIPRONEFTETRANS LLP (KGNT), which delivers competitive products, provides state-of-the-art services in design, engineering, construction and procurement, and operates in one of the leading national industries – oil and gas, where the innovative technologies, bold engineering solutions and cutting-edge engineering methods are introduced and accumulated.

KGNT’s development is closely related to the history of the Soviet and the latest periods of industrialization and modernization of present-day Kazakhstan.

KGNT dates back to 1974. By order of the Council of Ministers of the Kazakh SSR, a Special Design Bureau (“SDB”) was created under the Kazglavneftesnab. One of the significant milestones in the successful formation of the SDB was demonstration of its outputs at the USSR National Economy Achievement Exhibition in 1985.

In 1986, by the decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR, the SDB was reorganized into KazGiproNefteTrans State Design Institute. In 1995 – 1996, the institute executed a significant international project – the first Chevron gas station in Central Asia, in Almaty.

In 2001, the Company was transformed into ENGINEERING COMPANY KAZGIPRONEFTETRANS CJSC.

Since 2003 the Company has been bearing its current name – ENGINEERING COMPANY KGNT LLP.
