The company now has eight vice presidents.
President Ilham Aliyev has dismissed four vice-presidents of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan (SOCAR).
The decree, signed on 19 July, dismissed Davud Mammadov, vice president for processing, Tofig Gahramanov, vice president for strategic development, Bahram Huseynov and Mikayil Ismayilov, vice presidents for geology and geophysics.
SOCAR was established in 1992 by a presidential decree on the basis of the Azerineft State Concern and the Azernefkimya Production Association. The president of the company is Rovnag Abdulleyev, about whom we published a biography piece on a few years ago.
Prior to the 19 July order, the company had twelve vice presidents.
