New Oil Pipeline 2006
Baku, Azerbaijan .December 13, 2006..An off-shore oil rig run by SOCAR, the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan. It is, as most Azeri rigs are; old, out of date and rusted from top to bottom. It produces a small amount of oil for domestic market. ..Since British Petroleum has come on line with its' rigs in Azerbaijan there is now more funding for repairs on these old rigs and the worker's pay has slightly increased.
