BP Pumped Less Oil From Caspian Field Last Month, Turan Says

February 13, 2012

Feb. 13 (Bloomberg) -- BP Plc pumped 710,000 barrels of oil a day from the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli field in Azerbaijan’s section of the Caspian Sea last month, the Turan news agency reported today, citing an unnamed official at the State Oil Co. of Azerbaijan.

That compares with 757,000 barrels of oil a day produced from the field, also known as ACG, in the first nine months of 2011, the report said.

Tamam Bayatli, a BP spokeswoman in the Azerbaijani capital of Baku, said the company will release output figures for both the ACG and Shah Deniz later this month.
