Thus, natural gas is expected to be the fastest growing component of world primary energy consumption The world energy gas consumption is expected to increase from 104 trillion cubic feet in 2006 to 153 trillion cubic feet in 2030 Global Consumption Growth Rates Source: Annual energy outlook 2009, International Energy 2009 OutlookSource: Wood Mackenzie Average predicted % growth rate until 2025 Expected Domestic Gas Production and Consumption (bcm) Supportive Global ConditionsKazakhstan Market 2010

5 A4 FORMAT Please don’t change page set up to A3, print to A3 paper and fit to scale ppt Despite a slow recovery of the global demand for energy due to the economic slowdown, in the longer term European demand for gas is expected to increase up to 700 bcm by 2030 from 540bcm in 2005, 480 bcm of which will be European import demand The gap between Russian company Gazprom’s domestic production and export commitments constituted between 200 and 300bcm in 2010: 200bcm will be sourced by Gazprom internally Given Gazprom’s low growth of long-term gas production, the additional 100bcm will be sourced from Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan. The 25-year supply contract in 2003 between Russia and Turkmenistan supports this assumption Gazprom’s demand for gas from Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan is in turn driven by the demand for gas in Russia, Ukraine, Poland as well as in Europe Volumes of domestic Kazakh gas may also significantly increase over the next 4-5 years (mainly due to exploration of the Kashagan oil field discovered in 2000) Transported volumes of gas and demand for transit capability are expected to increase in medium and long terms 5 ICA will remain the sole route for transportation of gas from Central Asia to European markets irrespective of who will be operating under gas supply contracts (Gazprom, Ukraine, Kazakh-based gas exporting producers) Natural Gas Demand Drives ICA’s Transmission Volumes Source: World Energy Investment Outlook

The main source of revenues is International Transit, which reached USD 805 million for in 2010, or almost 80% of gas transmission for the same period

Given the on-going reconstruction the throughput capacity of the pipelines has been invariably increasing Within Kazakhstan, ICA is responsible for transportation of natural gas through 10 main gas pipelines serviced by 22 compressor stations equipped with 284 gas compressor units of various types and models The most important in terms of transmission volumes is the main gas pipeline Central Asia-Center (“CAC”) with the aggregate length of 4,892 km in one-line estimation (imagine if a pipeline was one straight line) In addition, ICA operates three underground gas storages (“UGS”), the biggest being Bozoi UGS located in Aktobe region. Others are Poltoratskoye UGS located in the Southern-Kazakhstan region and Akyrtobe UGS in Zhambyl region. Underground gas storages are used to smooth the seasonality of gas demand supplying extra natural gas in winter and during the periods with lower gas imports Intergas Central Asia

Some of the pipelines listed in the table are connected in sequence. Total transmission gas volumes by ICA for 2010 amount to 98.2 bcm.

13 A4 FORMAT Please don’t change page set up to A3, print to A3 paper and fit to scale ppt Gazprom is the main recipient of gas transmitted by KTG/ICA under the Russian, Uzbek and Turkmen gas transit contracts –The contracts for gas transportation are signed by ICA and the owners of the gas. The owner of Russian, Uzbek and Turkmen natural gas is Gazprom. A new contract between ICA and Gazprom was signed for 5 years ( ) –The tariff for gas international transit is set in accordance with the agreement between ICA and Gazprom –The 5-year contracts signed with Gazprom in November 2005 has stipulated the following volumes in : Counterparty regions are becoming stronger –Turkmenistan strongly depends on gas exports and demand for its gas remains strong. Gas exports are the key source of hard currency proceeds, and the Kazakhstani route is the only export route currently available to them On December 12th, 2009 first thread of the main gas pipeline Kazakhstan-China which transports gas from Turkmenistan to China through Kazakhstan territory has been launched. ICA carries out maintenance service of first thread of the gas pipeline with projected gas transit volume of about 6 bcm in Second thread of the gas pipeline has been launched at the end of 2010 with increased volumes of gas up to 30 bcm. 13 Transit Volumes Breakdown 2010 (%)Gazprom Volumes Breakdown for 2010 Main Counterparties KazRosGas bcm Kyrgazgas bcm TCO bcm Gazprom bcm Domestic bcm

15 A4 FORMAT Please don’t change page set up to A3, print to A3 paper and fit to scale ppt 15 Relationship with Gazprom Gazprom is an owner of natural gas that is transported by Intergas in accordance with terms of Russian, Turkmen and Uzbek gas transportation contracts Five year contract with Gazprom was signed in 2005 with take-or-pay condition in respect to 80% of projected volumes. Take-or-pay condition for 80% of projected volumes applied to both Turkmen and Uzbek gas. The contract specified following volumes: Turkmen gas: 45,2bcm, Uzbek gas: 10,0bcm, Russian gas: 50,6bcm In 2010, Intergas and Gazprom have reached an agreement to keep international transit tariff in the order $1,70 for 1000 м 3 for 100km. Previously the tariff was increased in 2009 to $1,70 (+21.4%). In accordance with a new contract ICA and Gazprom are to negotiate new tariffs once every year Gazprom is a strategic partner for Kazakhstan in a geopolitical context and an important provider of hard currency ICA (as a part of the KMG group) and Gazprom are both empowered by Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation to negotiate the contracts Ultimately, the end consumers of the gas transmitted by ICA under its contract with Gazprom are European customers Gazprom’s counterparty risk for ICA is minimal - Russia’s need for ICA’s gas volumes ensures that if Gazprom was ever to fail, an appropriate replacement would be created and transmission would not be interrupted

16 A4 FORMAT Please don’t change page set up to A3, print to A3 paper and fit to scale ppt Transit from Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan to the Russian border Transmission tariff remained at the 2009 level of 1.70 USD for 1000 m 3 per 100 km. Contract has been signed for 5 years (2011 – 2015) 80% of transmission volumes is guaranteed by “take or pay” clause 2. Transit through northwest of Kazakhstan follows the same terms and conditions Gazprom’s own production has for years remained stable Enhancement of throughput capacity of gas transportation system Throughput of the CAC pipeline is projected to initially increase from current 56 bcm to 60 bcm and then ultimately to 80 bcm The tariff increase negotiated with Gazprom was specifically intended to enable ICA to undertake major investment projects that will benefit both companies Main Conditions of Gazprom’s ContractsMain Implications Medium-Term Contract with Gazprom will Provide Greater Stability to ICA’s Credit Profile

ICA paid shareholder dividends for 2009 in amount of $ 17.2 billion tenge in October 2010 and dividends for 2008 in amount of 10 billion tenge in November 2010 ICA’s long term debt is mainly for investment projects (increase of throughput capacity for the gas transmission network, the most profit generating asset) In December 2008 ICA redeemed USD 71mln of its USD Bond 2011 and in February 2009 USD 60mil of its USD Bond Both repurchases were financed by the company’s cash and were prompted by market conditions and attractive pricing Source: ICA

Cash is invested into the highly liquid financial instruments such as cash at bank accounts and deposits, also ICA considers investing in very low risky securities such as government notes As of December 2010, ICA has accumulated 179 million USD to repay Eurobond in 2011 Significant portion of interest rate on debt is fixed interest rate, which indicates very low exposure to changes in interest rates Current debt is dominated in USD poising great foreign exchange book losses in the case of Tenge devaluation Fixed rate 93.2%
