BP’s Azerbaijani Oil Field Could Be a Game-Changer for Baku

BP’s new Azeri-Central-East (ACE) facility is expected to boost oil production by 25 percent.
The ACE facility has the capacity to handle up to 2.6 bcm of gas per year, which could help Azerbaijan meet its gas supply commitments to the European Union.
The launch of the ACE facility comes at a fortuitous time for Azerbaijan, which is heavily dependent on hydrocarbon exports.
