“I would like to congratulate the oil workers on the upcoming professional holiday and wish them continued success. Oil workers have always enjoyed great respect in Azerbaijan. It is still the case today, and the work of oil workers is true heroism. An oil worker’s profession is both respectable and risky, and I want to say again that their work is real heroism. At the same time, oil workers have contributed a great deal to the successful development of our country,”  President Ilham Aliyev said in an interview with Azerbaijan Television, Public Television, and Real Television on September 19, after a groundbreaking ceremony for the Absheron field offshore operations at the Heydar Aliyev Baku Deep Water Jackets Plant.
