SOCAR Allocates USD 4 Billion for New Offshore Rigs

Azerbaijan’s state-controlled oil and gas exploration and production company, SOCAR, has allocated $4 billion for the construction of four new offshore drilling rigs, Bloomberg has reported, quoting Rovnag Abdullayev, the president of SOCAR.

According to the news agency, at a meeting in Baku, Abdullayev said that up to fifteen thousand people will participate in the construction of the rigs over the next seven years. The rigs will be used for oil and gas exploration in Azerbaijan’s sector of the Caspian Sea.

Oil and gas development and export is central to Azerbaijan’s economic growth and the country is one of Caspian region’s most important strategic export openings to the West.
