"Considering the huge demand for natural gas in international markets. I think this will happen at the right time. Of course, there are great expectations about our potential. We always knew how many reserves we had. I do hope that when we start drilling, this field will grow, as was the case with Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli," said President of Azerbaijan, Ilham Aliyev, commenting on the drilling works in Shah Deniz, as he participated in the Azeri Central East platform jacket sail away ceremony at the Heydar Aliyev Baku Deepwater Jackets Factory, APA reports.
"The results proved at least twice as big as the initial forecast. Considering that the entire infrastructure, the transportation infrastructure is now available, I think this is a truly historic opportunity to serve the people of Azerbaijan and our international partners in terms of trying to produce as much as possible," Ilham Aliyev said.
