It was a major blow to the rival Nabucco West pipeline consortium which planned a different route further north. Europe is looking to Azeri gas to reduce its dependence on Russian supplies, which currently account for nearly a third of all EU gas imports. TAP will connect with a planned pipeline from the Caspian Sea fields through northern Turkey and then run through Greece and Albania to Italy for onward distribution through the rest of Europe. The project, which is fronted by Norway's Statoil, Swiss company AXPO and Germany's E.ON, is due to open in six years time. The pipeline is expected to pump six billion cubic metres of gas per year to consumers in energy-hungry Turkey and 10 billion each year to Europe. Nabucco West has said it is now considering reconfiguring to ship gas instead from fields in the Black Sea, off Romania through Hungary to Austria. The TAP announcement came as Russia's Gazprom was holding its annual general shareholders' meeting Chief Executive Alexei Miller, who said Gazprom will supply more natural gas through pipelines to Europe this year, was of the opinion that the TAP decision meant the death of the Nabucco project. "It doesn't exist more," he told reporters. Miller said the Russian state-run company's gas exports to Europe were up 10 percent between January and June after they fell last year by about seven percent due to weaker demand. However he expects profit this year to be down by as much as 10 percent due to rising taxes, lower growth in domestic gas prices and rebates.

Despite its long history of producing oil, Azerbaijan still possesses considerable oil and gas deposits. Today, four off-shore oilfields produce the lion's share of Azerbaijan's output: "Guneshli," which yields 57 percent of Azerbaijan's current oil production, "Chirag," "Azeri," and "Kapaz." During the Soviet period, these fields were left largely untapped because of the expense and difficulty of drilling at great depths under the sea. Since independence, the Azerbaijan International Operating Company, a twelve-company consortium dominated by BP-Amoco, is developing the three largest Azeri oilfields. Apart from the development of the oilfields, which has already begun, Azerbaijan continues its explorations for other deposits in the Caspian Sea. In the part of the Caspian belonging to Azerbaijan, around 24 sites have been singled out as suitable for drilling. The Gateway visits "Oil Rocks", the first ever offshore oil well in the world; a huge feat of engineering, built in 1949

English/Nat After nearly a century of isolation the city of Baku - capital of Azerbaijan - is booming again as Western companies scramble for a slice of offshore oil riches in the Caspian Sea. An international oil consortium this week announced a new pipeline route, setting the stage for large-scale production to start up next year. Cut off for nearly a century of revolution, war and Soviet rule, Baku is booming again as Western companies scramble for a slice of Azerbaijan's offshore oil riches in the Caspian Sea. An international oil consortium this week announced a new pipeline route, setting the stage for large-scale production to start next year. Baku's oil boom at the end of the last century made the Rothschilds and the Nobels wealthy and powerful competitors to Standard Oil. Their riches were consumed in the revolutionary conflagration of 1917. Jerry-built oil rigs now choke the bay. An evil haze hangs over the Soviet-era oil refineries. Treacly oil bleeds from old wells into the Caspian. But the oil barons are back, in the guise of the 11-member consortium called the Azerbaijan International Operating Company (AIOC). The consortium plans to produce 700-thousand barrels of oil a day from two offshore fields by the year 2000, requiring direct investment of eight (b) billion (US) dollars. Western companies believe the former Soviet republic sits over some of the most important oil deposits in the world. The rush is now on to see who will be able to capitalise on this huge potential. SOUNDBITE: "Oil developments in this region are going to be taking place I hope in a rather rapid fashion over the next few years and there's going to be a lot of oil that will come not only out of Azerbaijan, not only out of the AIOC concession but out of others as well." SUPER CAPTION: Richard Kauzlarich, US Ambassador The shaky former Soviet republic of Azerbaijan stands to earn over 90 (b) billion dollars from the project, with others in the offing. Already, a crop of expensive stores, bars and restaurants has opened to lighten the pockets of wealthy, Western oil workers and executives. For homesick Americans, Charlie's Bar sells hamburgers and steaks. Nearby stands the Lord Nelson pub where English beer is freighted in for thirsty British oilmen. Landlord Charlie Christmas is convinced he's on to a winner. SOUNDBITE: "I think Baku is a boom town. If you're not in it now, you've missed it. You've got to be in, I was exactly a year ago. If you're not in now, you've lost it." SUPER CAPTION: Charlie Christmas, pub owner Westerners have flocked to Baku lured by the promise of easy money. But political instability in the Caucasus is likely to make the Baku oil business a high stakes game.

Aliev Jr. and Sr., together with Mehriban Alieva, are making sure that power stays in the family: "We are not speaking about the ruling team in Azerbaijan, we're speaking about the ruling family." Ismayilova says that the international community is partially responsible for accepting the referendum results and not imposing sanctions on Ilham Aliev for his continuous violations of political and human rights. "The world has been tolerating all these anti-democratic moves of the government...So why would Ilham Aliev not do that if the world is silent?"
