Azerbaijan Exported Less Crude Oil, Natural-Gas Last Year

Feb. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Azerbaijan, the third-largest oil producer in the former Soviet Union, exported less crude in 2012 as output declined for a second year.

The Caspian Sea nation shipped 36.8 million metric tons of oil, down 5.8 percent, the State Statistics Committee said today by e-mail. Exports of natural gas fell 2.9 percent to 6.6 billion cubic meters, the Baku-based committee said.

Azerbaijan, the biggest oil producer in the former Soviet Union after Russia and Kazakhstan, pumped 43 million tons of crude in 2012, a decline of 5.3 percent, the committee said Jan. 17. Output of marketable gas, which it exports to Turkey, Russia and Georgia, expanded 5.4 percent to 17.2 billion cubic meters.
