Rovnag Abdullayev, SOCAR President, spoke about the achievements of Azerbaijan’s energy strategy. He informed the guests about the SOCAR’s investment projects carried out in Azerbaijan and abroad.
Bernard Looney, BP's Upstream CEO, said: «That’s why when we wanted to talk to our investors about the future - we brought them here. After all, if anyone wanted to know what the future of oil and gas looks like, they only need come to Baku.»
