As General Director of Cross Caspian Oil and Gas Logistics LLC Dmitry Solovyev said, one of the main lines of economic development is a transport sector and its major component – transit corridors which will be discussed at Caspian Energy Forum – 2017, Trend reports.
“Lines of development of transit corridors have been reflected in the road maps on development of the transport sector, approved by President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev. Advantageous geographic location, favorable investment climate, as well as accumulated logistics experience make it possible to consider a transport corridor across the Caspian Sea towards the Black Sea as a strategically important transit route for attraction of additional financial resources into the country,” Dmitry Solovyev emphasized.
Cross Caspian, which is an active partner of Caspian European Club (Caspian Business Club) and has a vision of the single corridor of transportation of hydrocarbons to the Black Sea via the Caspian Sea, supports Caspian Energy Forum – 2017 as a ground for development of the transport and transit potential.
Cross Caspian Oil and Gas Logistics LLC is a venture established jointly with the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR), coordinating and providing overall services on transportation of hydrocarbons to the Black Sea via the Caspian Sea, as well as into the system of the main export pipeline Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan by sea, pipeline and railway.
