5) single technical corridor - set of trunk gas pipelines (or sites) and the gas trunk pipeline systems (including with different pressure) providing transportation of commodity gas in the single direction (transport flow), laid in parallel on one route;

6) gas - crude, commodity, liquefied oil and liquefied natural gas;

7) gas supply - activities in the field of production, transportations (transportation), storage and realization commodity, liquefied oil and (or) liquefied natural gas;

8) the conservation zone of objects of gas supply systems - the territory with special conditions of use which is established around objects of gas supply systems for the purpose of providing safe service conditions and exception of possibility of their damage;

10) gasification - complex of the actions directed to use in fuel quality of the commodity and (or) liquefied oil gas on objects of housing and communal services, industrial, agricultural and other facilities;

11) the gas equipment - the technical products of complete factory readiness used as components of gas pipelines (compensators, kondensatosbornik, safety and waste armature, armature pipeline locking), and also gas-using installations (gas devices, furnaces and plates);

12) partnership in the field of gas and gas supply form of interaction of the state and the investor for the solution of strategic and social tasks on ensuring deep conversion of the associated gas belonging to the Republic of Kazakhstan and productions with high value added on mutually advantageous conditions;

13) the gas-network organization - the legal entity having the certificate on accreditation and performing operation of the gas-filling station, and also wholesale and retail sale of the liquefied oil gas on the conditions established by this Law;

14) the gas pipeline - the construction consisting of the pipes connected among themselves with shutoff valves and intended for gas transportation in gaseous or two-phase state;

15) gas-distribution system - the complex of technology interconnected constructions consisting of gas pipelines (linear part) and the objects integrated to them, intended for transportation of commodity gas from trunk gas pipeline to gas-consuming systems;

16) the gas-distributing organization - the legal entity performing transportation of commodity gas on gas-distribution system, technical operation of gas-distribution system, and also wholesale and retail sale of commodity gas on the conditions established by this Law;

17) the gas transmission organization - the legal entity rendering transportation services of commodity gas on connecting, trunk gas pipelines and (or) storage of commodity gas in storages of commodity gas on the conditions established by this Law;

19) the gas-filling station - complex of technology interconnected production and other facilities intended for storage, discharge and filling the liquefied oil gas in cistern cars, autogas carriers, household cylinders and also repair and utilization of household cylinders;

20) gas-consuming system - the complex of gas pipelines (linear part) and the gas equipment intended for acceptance of commodity gas from gas-distribution system or the liquefied oil gas from group reservoir installation, and also their use in fuel quality and (or) raw materials;

21) metering devices - measuring instruments and other technical means which perform the following functions: measurement, accumulating, storage, display of information on expense, amount, temperature, pressure of gas and operating time of devices;

22) the connecting gas pipeline - the gas pipeline intended for transportation of sour gas from the contract area to gas processing plant or industrial consumer of sour gas or for transportation of commodity gas from gas processing plant to trunk gas pipeline;

23) the trade gas pipeline - the gas pipeline intended for gas transportation within the contract area;

24) the household consumer - the physical person or legal entity acquiring the commodity and (or) liquefied oil gas for household needs when implementing business, non-commercial or other activity without the purposes of its further realization;

25) No. 297-VI ZRK is excluded according to the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan of 30.12.2019;

26) wholesale - business activity on realization commodity, liquefied oil and (or) liquefied natural gas in the domestic market for the purposes of further realization or out of limits of the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and also in cases of gas sale of the gas-distributing organization on normative technical losses and to the consumers included in the list of power plants;

27) internal needs of the Republic of Kazakhstan - the amounts of the commodity and (or) liquefied oil gas necessary for consumption in the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan;

28) trunk gas pipeline - the engineering construction consisting of one or several gas pipelines (linear part) and objects integrated to them providing the increase and pressure decline of the transported gas, means of telecontrol, communication and other communications intended for transportation of commodity gas. The structure of objects of trunk gas pipeline is determined by the project documentation and requirements of technical regulations;

28-1) petrochemical products - the products received on the basis of hydrocarbonic raw materials (oil and gas) by implementation of chemical processes and used as finished goods (except for fuels and lubricants), and as raw materials for the subsequent chemical transformations;
