The project, which is expected to cost around EUR13bn, is scheduled to start in 2020. SOCAR and the Azerbaijan government will invest 30% into the complex, while the remaining amount will come from private investors.
The complex will have 30 processing plants and a thermal power plant, and will process 10mt of oil and 10bn m? of gas.

SOCAR vice president Tofig Gahramanov was quoted by europeanplasticsnews as saying that the complex will also produce 670,000t of polyethylene and 550,000t of polypropylene. The complex has received interest from companies in Japan, the US, Korea and Italy, according to Gahramanov. SOCAR said the payback period of the project is between six and seven years.
