“Expenditures of the Southern Gas Corridor CJSC, the main share in which belongs to the government of Azerbaijan will amount to $6.2 billion by 2020,” said the representative of SOCAR, which owns the remaining 49 percent in this company.

The Southern Gas Corridor CJSC acts as an operator of the project, which includes, in particular, the TANAP project worth $9.2 billion.
