Furthermore, in January-June 2021, the Shah Deniz field produced around 10 billion m3 of gas and 1.9 million tonnes of condensate.
It should be noted that the existing Shah Deniz facilities’ production capacity is currently about 70 million standard m3 of gas per day.
In the 1st half of the year, more than $1.1 billion were spent in operating expenditure and around $366 million in capex, the majority of which was associated with the Shah Deniz 2 project.
