Drilling, production, refining and export figures for the 2nd quarter of 2020

In the second quarter of 2020, SOCAR produced 1.8 million tons1 of oil and 1.8 billion cubic meters2 of natural gas. The country’s natural gas production increased by 14% compared to the same period of the previous year, reaching 9.4 billion cubic meters3. Crude oil production totaled 8.6 million tons4 nationwide.

Production and drilling were suspended mainly on the onshore fields with low profitability.

In the second quarter, SOCAR’s refining output was about 1.5 million tons6 of oil, 804 million cubic meters7 of natural gas. The oil refining depth reached 94.93%.
