February 20, 2014

The Balkans were and will be the priority for the producers in Azerbaijan, the Vice President of Investment and Marketing of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) Elshad Nasirov said in an interview with New Europe, Azernews reported on February 19.

"Since the Balkans is the first destination immediately after Turkey in the European Union and, from the point of view of transportation costs and savings on the transportation if we compare delivery of gas to other regions of Europe, the Balkans is naturally our priority," Nasirov said.

He also stressed that the Trans-Anatolian Pipeline, the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline and the South Caucasus Pipeline will deliver gas from Azerbaijan to European and Turkish buyers on schedule.
