|Title:||Atyrau Airport Terminal Development Pre-Feasibility Study|
|Dates:||November, 2004 - January, 2005|
The airport at Atyrau is a transport link that is key to the economic development of Kazakhstan which is driven by the exploitation of substantial hydrocarbon reserves, both onshore and offshore, in the western part of the country.
Atyrau International Airport received a loan of circa $US 27 million for the construction of a new 3000 metre runway of design strength suitable for the operation of B737-400 aircraft. This came into service in mid-2005. The existing passenger terminal was in a poor condition and was operating beyond its design capacity of approximately 250 passengers (two-way) per hour.
Corporate Solutions conducted a financial analysis for the EBRD to determine whether advancing a loan towards the construction of the new passenger terminal would be a potentially attractive lending opportunity and worthy of closer examination.
