The Chevron–led joint venture developing the giant Tengiz oilfield in western Kazakhstan is getting the $45 billion expansion project back on track by starting the return of workers following a slowdown in operations due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“From 1 September, TCO began remobilising critical personnel to support safe and uninterrupted production operations and timely completion of the Future Growth Project-Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP-WPMP),” operator Tengizchevroil (TCO) said in a statement.
