EU Energy commissioner to visit Baku

Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 13

By Viktoriya Zhavoronkova - Trend:

The European Union energy commissioner Gunther Oettinger is expected to visit the Azerbaijan capital city, Baku in December, a source in the Energy Department of the European Commission , who asked not to be identified, told Trend on Dec. 13.

The aim of Oettinger's visit is to attend a ceremony finalizing an investment decision on the second phase of development of the offshore Shah Deniz field on Dec. 17.

The exact dates of his visit are under consideration, the source said.

During the ceremony 39 documents are expected to be signed.

The contract on development of the Shah Deniz gas and condensate field was signed on June 4, 1996. Stakeholders are: BP (operator) and Statoil with 25.5 percent each, NICO with 10 percent, Total with 10 per- cent, Lukoil with 10 percent, TPAO with 9 percent and SOCAR with 10 percent.

Reserves at the Shah Deniz field are estimated at 1.2 trillion cubic meters of gas.
The cost of the second phase of Shah Deniz field's development is estimated at $25 billion, according to BP's third -quarter report. They plan to obtain the first volumes of gas in 2018.

The second development phase plans to produce some 16 billion cubic meters of gas (9 billion - during the first phase), six billion cubic meters of which will be transported to Turkey and six billion cubic meters will be delivered to Europe.

The consortium of Azerbaijani Shah Deniz gas and condensate field development announced its choice of the TAP project in late June, as a route for transportation of gas to the European markets. The gas produced in the second phase of the Shah Deniz field is considered to be the primary source of the project.
The initial capacity of the TAP pipeline will stand at 10 billion cubic meters per year, with a chance of increasing these figures to 20 billion cubic meters per year.

Trans-Anatolian gas pipeline (TANAP) will be built to transport gas through Turkey; this pipeline will ensure gas deliveries to the European border.
