Crude Oil Qualities in Azerbaijan
'Azeri light' is the brand name for the oil produced from Azerbaijan's Azeri and Chirag fields, a premium quality crude oil with an API Gravity of 35°-35.5° and a sulphur content of 0.14 percent. According to BP, this qualifies Azeri Light as a "light, sweet crude oil".
On world markets Azeri Light normally trades at a premium to Brent crude, the benchmark blend produced in the North Sea.
