Azerbaijan resumes purchases of natural gas from Russia

48
From today, the Republic of Azerbaijan is resuming purchases of Russian natural gas. Deliveries will be made by Gazprom Export, a contract with which was signed by the SOCAR state company of Azerbaijan. The Russian holding company reports that about 1,6 billion cubic meters of “blue fuel” will be supplied to Azerbaijan as part of contractual obligations.


Azerbaijan stopped purchasing natural gas from Russia in 2015. In the period from 2010 to 2015, an agreement between Moscow and Baku was in effect, under which a subsidiary of Gazprom supplied Azerbaijan with 5,5 billion cubic meters of gas. In 2015, in particular, 107,4 million cubic meters of gas were sent from Russia in agreement with the Azerbaijani company AzMeCo.

Press office Gazprom cites the statement of Elena Burmistrova, General Director of Gazprom Export:
We are linked with Azerbaijan by long-standing partnership relations in the field of natural gas trading. It is pleasant to note that they are successfully developing and moving to a new level.


Azerbaijan resumes purchases of natural gas from Russia


The resumption of gas supplies from the Russian Federation to Azerbaijan started against the background of statistics on the growth of gas production in Azerbaijan itself. At the same time, the republic notes that purchases in the Russian Federation will allow expanding the export of “blue fuel”, making it clear that Baku is going to resell Russian gas, which Gazprom does not object to.

              There is nothing strange. Our neighbor is an Azeri (Turk), we communicate normally. Moreover, I was one of the first to give him a hand. He is not a local.

        And what a cool scheme: it lowers the price to Azerbaijan, and then resells it through second hands ...

      business and nothing personal - but what's strange about it, if I am satisfied with selling you for 1 ruble, and you can sell for three, then the problem is in me, although if you have your own pipe, then perhaps I through your pipe, having paid you for transportation, and ultimately I can’t get it anymore

        Exactly, this is only business. Only marketing. That is, all factors are taken into account: distance, availability of communications, logistic factors, exchange opportunities, including a possible reverse. The price is set after assessing all these factors. It is profanation or malice, not knowing the details, to make far-reaching conclusions about the motives (including political) of the transaction.
        Turkmenistan sold gas to Iran, which has the largest gas reserves in the world (after Russia :), because it is more profitable to buy from Turkmenistan than to conduct a gas pipeline to eastern Iran. Gazprom also buys gas from Turkmenistan. This is common in the oil and gas business.

        There are Cossacks. There is no gas. And we are not eager to have it. According to polls, it is a complete refusal. Lipizdrichestvo or just a stove. We don’t need gas. We want to live, not explode.

              Having gas and producing gas are different things, and gas must also be transported and processed.

              You can see what kind of monsters you have to build in the Power of Siberia project.

              Or perhaps Iran sells gas to China and such an intricate route is more profitable or even possible.

      Yanardag is located 25 km from the capital of Azerbaijan, Baku, on the Absheron Peninsula. In fact, it is a 116-meter hill, under which huge deposits of natural gas lurk, constantly breaking out. Flames rise through a porous layer of sandstone to a height of about three meters.
      burns out however

      And what is surprising here? In markets, a situation is very common when traders of the same type of goods help a neighbor if a large buyer turns up, and the neighbor does not have enough goods. Ukrainians over there buy coal in America and no one is surprised by this.

    The news is a little strange. Although there are issues with gas pipelines, the presence of networks and sometimes it is easier to buy from a neighbor than to build a gas pipeline across the country. But is this Azerbaijan? These are those who are building a gas pipeline to Europe through Turkey, those who are going to compete with us on the European energy market, what happened while I was at work ????

          They have been building for about 10 years and will not begin in any way.

          And we always have the opportunity to close any gas project if it does not contribute to our interests.
