Baku. Ali Ahmedov – APA-Economics. As a result of exploitation of Shah Deniz gas field, Azerbaijan not only meets its demand for gas, but it exports gas to several countries, said the Deputy Minister of Industry and Energy Natig Abbasov.

He says Azerbaijan has met its demand for gas from import until 2007: “Since 2007, it has refused import and started to meet from own reserves. Next target is Europe. We try to export Azeri gas to Europe. Within these works, Azerbaijan and Turkey signed contract on construction gas Trans Anatolia gas pipeline. Azerbaijani gas will be delivered to Turkish-European border through this pipeline. Next transportation directions are considered”.

He noted, Azerbaijan could participate in the provision of European energy security as a transit country: “The talk is about transportation of Turkmen gas through Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan is ready to do its best”.
