BP in Azerbaijan
BP Azerbaijan: Stimulating social and economic progress
What we doWe opened our office in Baku back in 1992. Two years later BP and the consortium of international oil companies signed a major contract with the government of Azerbaijan. Today, offshore Caspian has become one of the world’s leading hydrocarbon provinces.
The development of the region’s offshore oil and gas fields and onshore pipelines made Azerbaijan a focal point of the global energy market and a gateway through which international investments reach the Caspian region and beyond.
This development has stimulated social and economic progress in the region. Its success is measured to a large extent by the degree to which their benefits are shared with the people of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey and the region as a whole.
How we do itWe seek to improve performance on a continuous basis by focusing on the achievement of safe, reliable and complaint operations and by putting safety and operational risk management at the heart of our activities.
We strive to make our socio-economic impact a positive one by running our operations responsibly and by investing in communities in ways that benefit both local population and BP.
