“Special relations with BP have been formed due to the fact that this company is an active player in the energy market of Azerbaijan and the global energy market. A number of contracts have been signed with the company. One of them is “Shahdeniz”, “Deepwater” and others are next.”
According to APA, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said this at the ceremony of shipping the housing units and upper structures of the technological supply platform, built for Shah Deniz-2, to the Shahdeniz contract area in the Caspian Sea.
“We trust BP. I am sure that BP also trusts Azerbaijan. Otherwise, they would not have invested so much in the country. As Mr. Jones noted yesterday and today, Azerbaijan is the number one investment space for BP. Currently, the company is working to expand the contract for Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli. Our partnership in Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli alone will last until 2050. I am sure that Shahdeniz will produce more gas than expected. The international team operating in Azerbaijan helps develop the country. I believe that Azerbaijan creates a favorable business environment for cooperation between the local SOCAR and foreign investors. “
