  We hope there will be more discoveries from BP operated fields – Azerbaijani President

Energy cooperation is very important part of Azerbaijan-UK partnership, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said as he received Minister for European Neighbourhood and the Americas at the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office Wendy Morton, AzVision.az reports.

“We are very happy to complete the major project- the Southern Gas Corridor. You know BP is our strategic partner, the company which participated from the very beginning in the major projects in Azerbaijan as an investor,” the head of state said.

President Aliyev emphasized that after the prolongation of the “Contract of the Century”, bilateral cooperation will continue for many more decades.

“Of course, with a new gas development in Azerbaijan and infrastructure which has been completed last December, the new opportunities we have now. We hope that there will be more discoveries from BP operated fields. We have good prospects for that. So this is a very important part of our bilateral cooperation, also cooperation between other countries. We established very probably unique format of cooperation between the countries of our region and the European Union, and with the strong support from the governments of the United Kingdom and United States,” he said.

The president noted that the 7th meeting of the Advisory Council of the Southern Gas Corridor will be held after two days.
