The increase in the volume of transportation of Kazakh oil for export from the port of Aktau is due to an increase in the volume of raw materials shipped towards the port of Baku, from 69 thousand tons to 838 thousand tons, which is 12 times more than in the same period in 2022. In addition, in the reporting period, 1 million 327 thousand tons of oil were shipped from the port of Aktau towards the port of Makhachkala.
