‘First commercial gas to Turkey in 2018 is a significant target we had promised to deliver since the start of this major project’, Gary Jones, BP’s Regional President for Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, said on July 2
‘Working together with the regional governments and our co-venturers in the Shah Deniz consortium, we have met this target safely, on schedule and within budget. This demonstrates that together we can successfully deliver high quality projects. BP as operator is very pleased that the longstanding partnerships we have in Azerbaijan and the entire region have allowed us to bring this world class project to success enabling us to meet our commitments to consumers in Turkey. We look forward to continuing to build on this extraordinary delivery and work closely with the government of Azerbaijan, SOCAR and other co-venturers towards our next target of gas to Europe in 2020’, he said.
