The 27th International Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition is the largest event in the energy sector of the Caspian region.

The Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition is a well-known event in the region’s oil and gas industry, as well as an international platform that annually gathers top executives to discuss key oil and gas projects in the Caspian region and ensure energy security.
The initiative to hold the Caspian Oil and Gas exhibition was supported by national leader Heydar Aliyev. Since then, the Caspian Oil and Gas exhibition has been a meeting place for leading experts in the oil and gas and energy sectors, where memorandums and agreements on future cooperation were signed. From the first days of its existence, the exhibition has been under the close attention of the republican leadership. The annual participation of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev in the opening ceremony once again confirms the high status of the exhibition. The leaders of the USA, Great Britain, Turkey and other countries sent congratulatory letters to the exhibition in connection with its long-standing success.
The national pavilions of Germany, Russia and Romania will take part in the exhibition. This year’s innovations include renewable energy pilot projects, a green energy zone, offshore wind potential, Memorandums, green hydrogen and export issues.
The companies will demonstrate innovative technologies in the field of oil production and energy transportation, storage of oil and gas systems and services, as well as current and prospective oil and gas projects in the region and a number of other achievements.
The traditional exhibition “Caspian Oil and Gas” will again bring together the leaders of the energy industry from around the world.
