"Under the terms of the contract the Chinese firm will have to double output on the field and drill four exploration wells over the next five years on the second part of the field," SOCAR head Natik Aliyev said.
The field, put on stream decades ago, currently produces a mere 160 barrels per day. SOCAR will hold a 25 percent stake. The remaining 25 percent is yet to be distributed.
