Rashid Javanshir, BP's Regional President, said: "We are particularly pleased that the PSA was ratified by a unanimous vote. This is a good demonstration of the countrys acknowledgement of BPs track record here and trust in our long-term commitment to Azerbaijan. We look forward to working in partnership with the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) to expand our mutual cooperation in exploration and development".
