Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev has ordered the construction of a new national gas pipeline stretching from Kyzylorda in the south of Kazakhstan to the Kazakh capital, Astana.

"Only nine (of Kazakhstan's) regions are currently gasified - mainly in the western and southern regions, while the central and northern regions of the country are still without gas. This makes it necessary to build a gas pipeline,” Nazarbayev told a joint session of the Houses of Parliament on March 5.
