Markleen Sales Manager Stuart Duncanson gave a presentation entitled “Oil Spill Response-Shaping the Future”. The conference was organised by INTSOK, Norwegian Oil and Gas Partners, in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The Minister of Energy of Azerbaijan, Mr. Natiq Aliyev, visited Norway in April 2013. As a result of this visit “Norway Days” were held in Baku this month. The purpose of the event was to strengthen bilateral ties between Norway and Azerbaijan on energy issues, as well as providing a basis for commercial cooperation between Norwegian companies and key Azerbaijani institutions.

The Ministry of Emergency Situations of Azerbaijan hosted the first workshop on emission reduction, oil spill prevention and clean-up technologies. The following day SOCAR held a workshop at the Oil and Gas Scientific Research Project Institute on the following topics: improved oil recovery, increased safety in construction and drilling, innovative instrument solutions and cleaner production. The last workshop was hosted by Caspian Drilling Company and focused on technologies and services for drilling.

The positive experience from the “Norwegian Days” provides good substance for dialogue and fuels further collaboration between Norway and Azerbaijan in the energy field.
