President of the Azeri oil company Rovneg Abdualev has stated that in 2009 Azerbaijan will produce 50 million tonnes of crude oil. This figure is different from one given by Government officials – 61 million tonnes.

Last year the state’s prognosis for 2008 was 50 million tonnes. However we are to rely on the figures submitted by oil companies, which possess more realistic data. State figures are more in the nature of aspirations or targets.
