The Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference, which has been run for more than 20 years, creates a real atmosphere of mutual understanding among participants and opens new horizons for broad economic relations by combining our mutual strengths. I believe that the exhibition and conference will enhance effective cooperation within processes in the oil and gas sector and will prove to be an important meeting place.
Ilham Aliyev
The President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
The Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference has made it a significant event within the world's oil industry and it has great international resonance every year.
Rovnag Abdullayev
President of SOCAR
Indeed, I have been one of the speakers and participants of the International Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference for 22 years and each time I witness this unfaltering interest in the event from industry professionals. Every year, the number of exhibition and conference participants just grows and grows and the topics discussed are becoming more salient.
Khoshbakht Yusifzadeh
Academician and First Vice President of SOCAR
The International Caspian Oil and Gas Conference has, once again, brought together leading representatives of the Azerbaijan oil and gas industry and fuel exporters from around the world. It is a very stable and important event as it aims to demonstrate how much has been done in Azerbaijan in this field in recent years, which gives good reason to think positively and optimistically about the future.

Since I became the General Manager of Schlumberger Lojelco Inc's Azerbaijan office, our company has been annually participating in the Caspian Oil & Gas exhibition. I admit, we are very pleased to be participating in the International Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Confer-ence. It is a great opportunity for a company to meet with its clients, partners and industry peers. Presentations at our stand have always attracted the attention of visitors, and, of course, we are here to take part in discussions about the development of the oil industry, which ultimately helps us to formulate a company strategy.
William Grace
General Manager of Schlumberger Lojelco
The Caspian Oil & Gas exhibition is one of the most important events of the year for us. This event creates an opportunity to expand business ties both within the Caspian region and internationally.
Brian Garrad
Head of the Operational Department, Caspian Marine Services Limited
In my opinion, the International Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference is an extremely important event for the oil and gas industry of Azerbaijan and the entire region. It is where the latest technologies from the industry are demonstrated alongside presentations of new projects. This productive event also allows participants to trace the latest market trends.
Gordon Birrell
Regional President of BP for Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey
For over 20 years, Caspian Oil and Gas has presented the latest technologies and solutions for the oil and gas industry, as usual this year brought the best representatives of the industry from across the world to Azerbaijan. However, the role of the exhibition and conference is not limited to resolving the broad range of industry issues; it is far wider. Exhibitors, delegates and guests from various countries visit the event each year and get the opportunity to see the successful and promising development of modern Azerbaijan and learn about our culture, which is extremely important.
Natik Aliyev
Minister of Energy of the Republic of Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan is our strategic partner in energy security and diversification of energy sources. Your country has undertaken huge efforts in building a gas pipeline to Europe, and we, as Europeans, support these steps. Therefore, Poland supports the work of Azerbaijan in its TANAP project. We also brought companies involved in creating energy infrastructure to Caspian Oil and Gas. Poland is very interested in Azerbaijan's chemical products produced by processing oil and gas.
Janusz Piechocinski
Deputy Prime Minister of Poland
We consider our participation in the exhibition to be very important and are proud of it. Relations between Iraq and Azerbaijan are based on long-standing traditions and we have a lot in common. I am confident that our relations will develop further and we have many reasons to be at this exhibition and conference. We also support such a strategy and have many opportunities for developing relations with Azerbaijan, using your experience of modernising the industry combined with the economic rise of the country in general. I am therefore grateful for the invitation to take part in Caspian Oil and Gas 2015.
Adil Abdul-Mahdi
Minister of Oil of Iraq
Russneft is a regular exhibitor at Caspian Oil and Gas; this is our fifth time here. As always, visitors to our stand can find new and interesting information. It is clear that Caspian Oil and Gas has important international significance; this is evident by its line-up of exhibitors. Therefore, our company's main aim in exhibiting is to strengthen links with long-standing partners and establish other relations with players in the global oil and gas market.
