Iran, as the only country that runs a deepwater semi-submersible drilling rig in the Caspian Sea, displayed its abilities in the drilling industry at an exhibition in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Ehsanollah Qasemi, the North Drilling Company’s director for international marketing and cooperation, noted that such expos provide the company with opportunities to present its potential expertise to foreign markets.
“The company can cooperate with the Caspian Sea littoral states, such as Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Turkmenistan, in drilling activities,” IRNA quoted him as saying on Friday.
The 25th International Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference was held from May 29 to June 1 in Azerbaijan, which gathered leading experts and leaders from the oil industry, namely SOCAR, BP, Total, Norway’s Statoil and Turkey’s Petkim, to demonstrate advanced technologies of oil and gas production, refining, transportation, logistics and services.
