In January-November 2021, Azerbaijan exported 8 billion 72.9 million cubic meters of gas to Turkey from the Shah Deniz field, which is 22.7% lower than in 11 months of 2020.

According to a report by the Turkish Energy Market Regulatory Council (EPDK), in November 2021, the volume of Azerbaijani gas supplies to Turkey amounted to 607.5 million cubic meters. At the same time, Azerbaijan accounted for 12.03% of all gas supplies to Turkey. Compared to November 2020, the volume of exports decreased by 42.93%.

In general, in November Azerbaijan moved from third to fourth position in terms of gas supplies to Turkey. In the first place – Russia, which accounted for 32.03% of all deliveries, in the second – the United States (16.5%), in the third – Iran (15.77%).

Azerbaijan exported 11 billion 547.99 million cubic meters of gas from the Shah Deniz field to Turkey in 2020 (an increase of 20.5%).

The decrease in Azerbaijani gas supplies to Turkey is explained by the fact that in the period from April 16 to September 15, within the framework of the Shah Deniz-1 project, no supplies were made to the neighboring country. This was the completion of a 20-year contract signed in March 2002. Later, the parties managed to sign a new contract, merging it into a single one within the framework of Shah Deniz.

Previously, contracts were in effect for Shah Deniz-1 and Shah Deniz-2. Under the new contract, until 2026, Turkey has pledged to import 9.5 billion cubic meters of gas from Azerbaijan annually.
