The total gas production from the Shah Deniz, which is among the world’s largest gas-condensate fields, increased by 26.2 percent in the first five months of 2022, Azernews reports.
Moreover, the total gas production from the field increased by 123 percent during the period 2017-2021.
June 30 marks four years since the start of commercial gas supplies to Turkey within the framework of the Shah Deniz 2 project, which is the second phase of development of the Shah Deniz gas condensate field in the Azerbaijani sector of the Caspian Sea.
