UK brings largest ever Oil and Gas mission to Azerbaijan

The UK’s Department for International Trade, together with the British Embassy, Baku, will bring a delegation numbering 31 to Baku from 22 – 24 November 2017, the Embassy of Great Britain in Azerbaijan told AzVision.az.

The meeting will be organized as a part of the UK/Azerbaijan Partnership Programme, an initiative launched in October 2015 with the cooperation of SOCAR and BP. The Partnership Programme is designed to encourage UK and Azerbaijan companies to form long term relationships, to grow local capability and contribute a competitive response to regional oil and gas sector demand. To date, the programme has been responsible for the formation of 23 new partnerships in Azerbaijan including specialist engineering, equipment assembly, fabrication and local component supply.

The mission, which is essentially made up of UK supply chain companies, will meet with leading decision makers in the oil and gas industry throughout the 3 days and will visit a number of key UK and Azerbaijani companies. There will also be detailed technical sessions with SOCAR, BP and Total and an ABB Showcase at the Baku Higher Oil School.

Running alongside the programme, Millers Oils, a pioneer and leading UK lubricants manufacturer and distributor will open its new facilities in Baku on 23 November. Millers Oils are in partnership with the National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan. A reception will follow at the British Ambassador’s Residence.
