Azerbaijan says no plans to change BP as operator

BAKU, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Azerbaijan expects stable crude production at Azeri, Chirag and Guneshli (ACG) oilfields operated by BP -led consortium at 33-34 million tonnes per year in 2015-2020 and does not plan to change the operator of the contract, the chief of state oil company SOCAR said on Wednesday.

“We are preparing a programme which envisages oil production at ACG at 33-34 million tonnes in 2015-20,” SOCAR chief Rovnag Abdullayev told reporters.

“The contract has not been changed... I think there is no need to use possibilities, which are envisaged by this contract,” Abdullayev said in reference to a change of operator at the BP-led consortium.
