In 2014 the state nuclear company KazAtomProm and Russian Rosatom signed a cooperation deal on nuclear power, as well as a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on a new nuclear power plant. The design and size of the plant remains open, and was listed only as having generating capacity of 300-1200 MWe. Its siting will be in the Mangistau region (city Aktau).

In 2018 it is expected to commence construction in Kazakhstan of a second nuclear power plant. The location of the second nuclear power plant will be in the village Ulken (a town in the East Kazakhstan region).

After a program of expansion and joint ventures with foreign partners, Kazakhstan now produces about 22,550 tonnes of uranium per year – about 38% of the global total.
