(MENAFN- Trend News Agency) BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 6. The State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR) intends to enhance the oil recovery factor at the Azeri-Chirag-Gunashli (ACG) oil field block, SOCAR Vice President Babek Huseynov said during the "Exploration and Production Opportunities in the Caspian Region" panel at the 29th Baku energy Forum, Trend reports.

"The ACG block has undergone development for three decades, featuring highly efficient wells. Currently, the oil recovery factor stands at approximately 30–40 percent, which is deemed acceptable. However, our aim is to elevate this figure to 50 percent," emphasized Huseynov.
