                        Zhaikmunai L.P.
                        (the "Company")


London - August 25, 2010 - Zhaikmunai L.P. (LSE: ZKM) ('Zhaikmunai'),
the independent oil and gas enterprise operating in northwestern
Kazakhstan, recently made its first shipment of crude oil through the
Black Sea port of Feodosia (Ukraine).

A total of 233,444 bbl was transported by rail to Feodosia on a Free on
Board sale (FOB-sale) where it was loaded on a tanker. As such the
company has successfully tested a new destination that it can use for
its future crude oil and condensate production.

Kai-Uwe Kessel, Chief Executive Officer, commented :"Until recently Zhaikmunai only transported its oil production towards
refineries in Finland, Ukraine and Kazakhstan. We are delighted that
our marketing team coordinated the shipment of almost one month's
production by rail and tanker to one of the most important ports on the
Black Sea. This initiative will allow us to reach many more off-takers
and as such it will improve our marketing reach and the net-backs we
obtain for the company's products."
