    The NAMA intends to foster the use of natural gas as a fuel for the transport sector. It first develops the infrastructure to supply compressed natural gas (CNG) throughout the country and later the infrastructure for liquefied natural gas (LNG).

    Activities: (2014 - 2026)
    Activities include

    • constructing a network of 35 to 100 CNG fueling stations (CNGFSs)
    • creating other infrastructure to enable a natural gas market in Kazakhstan (e.g., workshops for converting existing vehicles to CNG, testing and certification centers, training facilities)
    • extending natural gas to non-traditional transport areas.

    The NAMA also aims to develop and implement a comprehensive program for natural gas fuel promotion, including a package of government support measures, formulate technical and regulatory norms, protocols, or documents, and develop the necessary institutional and human capacity to support a switch to natural gas.

    34 distinct activities are planned and can be grouped into four main phases:

    (i) Phase 1 (2014-2015): Pilot market infiltration in selected cities;

    (ii) Phase 2 (2016-2018): Extending use of natural gas in transport to medium and small commercial players;

    (iii) Phase 3 (2019-2020): Fuel switching in agriculture, construction, and other specialty vehicles; and

    (iv) Phase 4 (2021-2025): Comprehensive market penetration.

    • job creation
    • increased disposable income
    • increased private enterprise in fields related to fuel switching and vehicle conversions
    • accelerated turnover of outdated vehicle stock
    • development of domestic CNG vehicle production capacity (eventually) with potential for exports
    Environmental: * reduced pollution
