 A consortium developing Kazakhstan's huge Kashagan oilfield said on Monday it did not expect to produce oil in the offshore field this year due to leaking pipelines.
 


"The current assessment, based on the results of an investigation, is that both the oil and the gas pipelines might have to be fully replaced," the consortium also said.



The North Caspian Operating Company (NCOC) consortium includes Eni, Exxon Mobil (XOM), Royal Dutch Shell (RYDAF) , China's CNPC, Japan's Inpex (I8U.F) and Kazakh state-run KazMunaiGas.
