In the first six months of 2018, the company produced 15 million tonnes of oil and 1.1 billion cubic metres (bcm) of associated gas in Azerbaijan, BP said.

A BP-led consortium said in a statement that it spent about $236 million (£179.9 million) in operating expenditure and $552 million in capital expenditure on operations at the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli (ACG) oilfields in the first half.

The consortium said that its Azeri units produced about 5 bcm of natural gas and 1.1 million tonnes of condensate at the Shah Deniz field.

It spent about $250 million in operating expenditure and about $798 million in capital expenditure, the majority of which was associated with the Shah Deniz II project.
