Our outlook on Azeri oil is heavily bearish, with the major ACG fields falling deeper into decline. Investments to stabilise output will help soften the fall; however, with a lack of new discoveries brought online this will be insufficient to reverse the overall trend. In contrast, we remain bullish on the prospects for Azeri gas, underpinned by large-scale new production from Shah Deniz. Prospects on the downstream remain poor, with ageing and low complexity infrastructure, a limited market for growth and weak prospects for investment.

Latest Updates and Key Forecasts:

- The country boasts substantial, prospective and underexplored acreage, in particular offshore in the South Caspian basin. SOCAR has also announced plans to restart onshore exploration, targeting ultra-deep oil deposits.

- A shortage of drilling rigs continues to delimit drilling activity in the Caspian Sea. A spate of exploration and appraisal, development and production wells are set to be spud between 2015 and 2017; SOCAR needs to secure additional drilling rigs in the coming quarters if it is to avoid the emergence of a major bottleneck in its upstream.
