Azerbaijan South Caspian exploration basin

Report summary

The Azerbaijan South Caspian Basin is a prolific hydrocarbon basin. Historically, it has been a liquids-rich province, dominated by onshore and shelf exploration. However, since the discovery of the giant Shah Deniz gas field in 1999, explorers have predominantly targeted giant, ultra-deep gas prospects. Due to its significant prospective resources, the basin has the potential to create healthy full cycle returns in the future.
