Ministry of Industry and Energy handles exports as well as exploration and production agreements with foreign companies. The State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR) produces less than 20 percent of Azerbaijan's total output, with the remaining 80 % being produced by the BP-operated Azerbaijan International Operating Company and other companies such as Chevron, Statoil, Turkiye Petrolleri, Total, LUKoil, SOCAR, OIEC of Iran directly investing in the development of construction of pipelines.
