A joint venture between KazMunaiGaz National Co. and China National Petroleum Corp. paid back $2.8 billion originally borrowed from Export-Import Bank of China to buy Kazakh oil producer Mangistaumunaigas.
Mangistau Investments B.V. borrowed the cash in November 2009 and was due to repay it in 2019, state-owned KazMunaiGaz said today in a statement on its website. The loan was paid from the revenue of Mangistaumunaigas, the company said.
