Azerbaijan, Baku/ Trend corr. S. Aliyev / Natig Aliyev, Azerbaijan's Industry and Energy Minister, has said today that the capabilities of the wells of the Azerbaijani offshore gas condensate field of Shah-Daniz are enormous, by adding that there is a possibility to increase gas production from this field up to 7 mln. cubic meters per day (over 2.55 bln. cubic meters a year).
"They may reach these work regimes, however it will be necessary to install major-diameter connecting pipes," he said.
According to him, researches and studies are necessary to conduct in the wells to attain their optimal work regime.
"However, the increase in the possibility of gas extraction at a volume of 7 mln. cubic meters a day is still the reality," he said.
According to the Minister, Turkey is not ready yet to receive the gas produced from Shah-Daniz via SCP (South Caucasian Gas Pipeline). "Today, only Georgia can receive this gas," he concluded.
