The second document was signed between Baker Hughes and the SOCAR Institute of Oil & Gas Research & Design and is an agreement that allows the production of reagents for the oil industry on the basis of effective use of SOCAR's existing facility in Azerbaijan.

At the same time, Baker Hughes and the Baku Higher Oil School signed an agreement under which the company will transfer licenses for JewetSuite software to the school.

"The $1 million worth SOFTWARE license will allow students to simulate various tasks in the Caspian basin. This will facilitate the transition of students from academic to professional environment and will allow them to gain experience in the use of advanced software in the field of geology and geophysics," Baker Hughes’ representative say.

The signing of the documents took place within the framework of the first Energy Forward event organized by Baker Hughes in Azerbaijan.
