It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the program. This morning we heard a very interesting presentation from Mr. Tanguy Cosmas, President of Statoil Azerbaijan. It was great to hear more about the activities of Statoil. In addition, we had the opportunity to hear an excellent presentation from Rikard Scoufias regarding the Trans Adriatic Pipeline. It was wonderful to hear more about the Trans Adriatic Pipeline and how it can connect gas to multiple European markets. We also had the opportunity to hear from Dr. Volkan Ozdemir regarding Caspian Energy and the perspective from Turkey. These presentations were excellent and extremely informative.
Throughout the program we have had a chance to meet as a group for very nice lunches. It has been a great opportunity to converse with fellow classmates and hear more about their experiences prior to attending the Baku Summer Energy School. Today, was a very interesting lunch as we had the opportunity to come together as a group for barbeque. We were divided into groups, with each group having the chance to chat and get acquainted with an oil company representative. It was a great opportunity to meet with and hear more from representatives of oil companies including Statoil and BP.
I very much look forward to the roundtable discussion with Ambassadors of the Caspian Basin States tomorrow!
