Feb. 13 (Bloomberg) -- State Oil Co. of Azerbaijan will bid for Igdas Istanbul Gaz Dagitim Sanayi Ve Ticaret AS, Istanbul’s gas distribution company, company President Rovnaq Abdullayev said in an interview on ANS television late yesterday.
Abdullayev said his company, known as Socar, is interested in distributing the natural gas it sells to Turkey. Turkey gets about 6 billion cubic meters of gas from Azerbaijan a year. That may double when output begins at the second phase of the BP Plc- led Shah Deniz development, also including Socar, in 2017
