We are undertaking gas production projects from deep layers with our strategic partner, BP. If all the work goes according to plan, by the end of next year we will get the first gas from a great depth.

The EPA reports that Azerbaijani President Ilham Əliyev announced this during the opening ceremony of the 28th International Xerxes Petroleum and Gas - "Caspian Oil&Gas" and the 11th Xerxes International Energy and Green Energy - "Caspian Power" exhibitions during Baku Energy Week.

Speaking about other projects, the head of state said: "We will be able to extract additional gas volumes to the market. At the same time, the issue of energy efficiency and renewable energy, - we have also had a dialogue with the European Union about it. As a result, we will save gas for the production of electricity and will already be released to international markets."
