    Azerbaijan to raise Europe gas supplies by 40% in 2022

    September 23, 2022 - BBC International Reports (Transcaucasus)


      Text of report by privately-owned, pro-opposition Azerbaijani news agency Turan on 22 September

      Baku, 22 September: Azerbaijan will increase natural gas supplies [to Europe] by 40% [by the end of] this year, raising exports to 11.5bn cubic metres [from 8.2bn supplied annually in 2021 and so far in 2022], Azerbaijani Energy Minister Parviz Sahbazov said in his speech at an international energy conference in Romania [the Romanian International Gas Conference].

      "This is a confirmation of the operation of the Southern Gas Corridor at its maximal capacity, and of its uninterruptedness and stability," Sahbazov said.

      The minister said that Azerbaijan was doing its best to "ensure natural gas delivery to the European energy market in large volumes, considering how sensitive Europe's energy security is".

      The energy minister highlighted the [upcoming] expansion of the Southern Gas Corridor within [the next] five years as the next step toward ensuring energy security.

      He said that in order to double natural gas exports to 20bn cubic metres it is necessary to invest in increasing the throughput capacity and production of pipelines, conclude contracts and take technical measures.

      "We believe that owing to joint political will, Europe will receive Azerbaijani natural gas at a crucial moment for [its] energy security - in the year 2027," Sahbazov said.

      In the long term, Azerbaijan will become a source of renewable energy and hydrogen for Europe, [the minister said].

      In this regard, he pointed out the importance of the Georgian-Romanian Black Sea project for the transfer of wind energy from the Caspian Sea basin to the Green [Energy] Corridor.

      [On 18 July 2022, Azerbaijan and the EU signed a memorandum of understanding on strategic energy partnership toward an increase in Azerbaijani gas supplies to Europe.]
