Miners in Kazakhstan will pay for the gas?
The authorities are going to accept the bill which will divide consumers into different groups including miners. The Minister of Energy Bolat Ackchulakov supposed that in this case miners will reimburse the part of the others.
Today the national gas operator has no profit from domestic consumers. Implementing different groups will help to avoid rising prices for households. In addition to the miners there will be one more group of large enterprises that should also help to keep prices for the gas at the same level.
Mining field has increased in Kazakhstan after the policy of China authorities which were to struggle against crypto fields in the country and prohibit all kinds of crypto operations including mining. After that, Chinese mines relocated to Kazakhstan.
