Established in 2007 with a lease set to expire at the end of 2032, the National Industrial Petrochemical Technopark (NIPT) aimed at catalyzing breakthrough investment projects within the petrochemical sector, particularly those involving products derived from petroleum, such as polyethylene. While the park’s infrastructure took years to develop, the impending lease expiration in 2032 raises concerns for long-term investors unless an extension is granted.

Priority Activities and Incentives of

NIPT’s Special Economic Zone (SEZ) focuses on chemical and petrochemical production. To attract investors, the SEZ offers significant preferences, including a 0% Corporate Income Tax, VAT exemption for suppliers, zero Land Tax, Property Tax, and Land plot rent. The SEZ also streamlines visa procedures for international employees.

Tenants entering into a Special Investment Contract with the investment committee enjoy exemptions from import customs duties and VAT payment when importing goods as part of finished products produced within the SEZ. Specific conditions apply, including adherence to customs procedures and compliance with the Republic of Kazakhstan’s customs legislation.

NIPT boasts a comprehensive existing infrastructure, featuring access roads, power transmission lines, substations, and essential facilities such as fire stations, customs control checkpoints, and security checkpoints. The infrastructure is designed to support the current needs of the park.

Development Stages

The park’s development unfolds in two stages. The first stage includes critical elements like a fire station, customs control checkpoint, and security checkpoint, while the second stage introduces additional facilities such as residential buildings, repair shops, and storage warehouses. Production infrastructure comprises a gas-turbine power plant, technical gases plant, and water treatment plant.
