Black Gold
4500 meters below the surface of the Caspian Sea: Bingo! Gold! BLACK gold! 75 kilometres from the Kazakh border, the Kashagan site revealed one of the largest oil fields ever discovered.
According to several forecasts, this discovery consists of 30 billion barrels which means that it can cater, alone, to over four years of North America's needs! Kashagan is currently the most important drilling sea site, with more than 5 billion francs invested by the OKIOC (Offshore Kazakhstan International Operating Company), a consortium composed of several multinational companies.
