British oil and gas company British Petroleum (BP) is working to strengthen the security of employees and facilities on projects in Azerbaijan due to the threat of attacks from the Armenian military, according to BP-Azerbaijan, Interfax reports.
“BP is deeply concerned about the expansion of military operations by targeting (the Armenian Armed Forces) on populated areas and civilian infrastructure in Azerbaijan. The news about the neutralization of the missile strikes by the Armenian Armed Forces near the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline and the South Caucasian pipeline by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces caused us special concern,” the message says.
The company notes that the security of all facilities in Azerbaijan, which BP operates, is ensured by the country's government.
“At the same time, we are working closely with the relevant structures to ensure the safety of our own employees, our operations and all the facilities for which we act as operators in Azerbaijan,” BP says.
Earlier it was reported that British Petroleum and Equinor will jointly develop offshore wind energy in the United States.
