Kazakh Oil Tenders

ALMATY, Kazakhstan () -- Kazakhstan is reviewing tender bids for two key oil firms and plans to announce the results soon, but has pushed back the deadline for a third tender in a crown-jewel refinery, a state property official said Monday.

The official, who declined to be identified, said the winners of tenders for the Chimkent oil refinery and the Yuzhneftegaz oil production association were expected to be announced Friday.

It was possible that officials would decide to prolong the tenders for those two enterprises, the source said.
