Baku, June 17 - Neftegaz.RU.
There are plans to produce about 1 billion cu m of natural gas from Umid field in Azerbaijan this year, a source in Azerbaijan's state oil company SOCAR said,Trend reports.

3 wells operate on the Umid-1 production platform with a total daily flow rate of 2,7 million cu m of gas and 430 tons of gas condensate per day.
