Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan should be considered a key export markets for any UK supply chain company working in the energy sector.

Azerbaijan remains one of the world’s highest spending oil & gas markets. The recent high profile signing by BP of an extension to their PSA for the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG) field marks an important next phase of growth, with new offshore facilities required to support increased production over the next thirty years.
The value of accessible business to the UK in the next 10 years is estimated in excess of £10bn and will feature a number of projects including:
- Brown field upgrade and maintenance of the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG) field and future development of ACG with a new production platform (ACE)
- Deep water Absheron gas condensate development
- Shallow Water Absheron Peninsula (SWAP)
- The Umid, Babel gas fields
- New exploration and appraisal prospects
