Denis Lemarchal, Managing Director Total E & P Absheron
This year, at our stand, visitors and participants of the exhibition can acquaint themselves with the simulator of Formula 1. There is an electric car equipped with special glasses of 3D vision. We are sure that this exposition will be of great interest at this event. At the same time, our stand contains detailed information on the activities of our company in Azerbaijan. Total started active activity in Azerbaijan back in 1996.
In Azerbaijan, Total is currently focused on the development of Absheron field. Back in 2016, SOCAR and Total signed a framework agreement on the main contractual and commercial principles that govern the programme for Stage 1 of development of Absheron field. The production of the first gas is scheduled for the beginning of 2020. Today, drilling operations at the field are in full swing. In addition, we continue to work actively in the market of industrial and automotive oils.
Caspian Oil & Gas is a convenient meeting point for partners and colleagues. In addition, there is the possibility of holding meetings in an informal atmosphere to discuss the most topical issues in great details. Such meetings are very important for stable professional work.
