SOCAR’s "Azneft" Production Union is developing 34 oil and gas fields, 20 of which are onshore and 14 of which are located in Azerbaijan’s sector of the Caspian Sea.
The onshore Balakhany-Sabunchu-Ramana Field has been under development since 1871. The start of development of this field marked a phase of more intensive development of Azerbaijan's oil industry, which was established in 1848.
The "Oil Rocks" field has been developed since 1949. The development of the field in the open sea, for the first time in the world, opened a new page in the history of oil and laid the scientific and practical groundwork for the development of offshore oil and gas fields in deep water.
The theoretical and practical knowledge gained by the Azneft PU specialists over many years has contributed greatly to the emergency and development of the oil industry in many parts of the world.
The Azneft Syndicate has 11 operating oil and gas production divisions with up to 5700 wells in service. Many processing units, different kinds of pipelines, pumps, compressors, and power plants, and other communications and infrastructure systems constitute the basis for oil and gas production.
The syndicate's two underground gas storage facilities play a major role in ensuring a steady year-round supply of gas in Azerbaijan. Currently there are sound projects to expand and upgrade both facilities to accommodate the reconstruction of gas supply systems outside the metropolitan area and greater gas exports by SOCAR.
