Azerbaijan wants to take an active part in the energy projects and tenders in Ukraine,
Azerbaijani Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador to Ukraine Azer Khudiyev said in an interview with Ukrinform.
"We would like to take an active part in the energy projects and tenders held in Ukraine,” Khudiyev said. “The largest share of commodity turnover is the export of Azerbaijani oil and oil products to Ukraine."
“Azerbaijan monthly imports to Ukraine about 200,000-300,000 tons of oil, oil products, gas condensates and other light and heavy materials for energy needs,” he said.
“SOCAR, which has already invested more than $300 million in Ukraine, plans to further expand its business under favorable and attractive investment conditions,” he said. "In the near future, we expect the visit of the management of this oil company to discuss with the Ukrainian Energy Ministry the prospects for a number of very profitable projects."
SOCAR is represented in Ukraine by its subsidiary - SOCAR Energy Ukraine. The company also owns 61 filling stations.
