Dear Exhibitors and Guests of
Caspian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference.
I am glad to invite you to visit art exhibition “The Nobel Brothers and Baku Oil. The Prize”. The collection has been exclusively created by me to celebrate 135 years since the Nobel brothers’ oil company was founded in Azerbaijan. The names of Alfred, Robert and Ludvig Nobel are well known throughout the world. Most people associated these names primarily with the Nobel Prize, but the majority of the Nobel legacy consists of capital from the activities of one of the largest oil companies of the time – The Nobel Brothers Petroleum Production Company. Specifically, 7-12% of the Nobel Foundation funds derive from this oil production in Baku and the Absheron Peninsular. We can therefore say that the history of the Nobel Prize is closely tied up with the history of oil production in Azerbaijan. In addition, the Nobel brothers made a significant contribution to oil production’s overall development. The first oil tanker, the first pipeline to the Caucasus, and a series of other oil and gas innovations are all thanks to the Nobel brothers and their activities on the Absheron Peninsular. These all has inspired us to create this uncial collection. I am very happy to know that BP company is sponsoring the art exhibition. Looking forward to welcoming you at Caspian Oil Gas Exhibition and once again invite you to visit exposition of “The Nobel Brothers and Baku Oil. The Prize”.
