Amerada Hess began its involvement in Azerbaijan in 1998. As of mid-2012 Hess had a 2.72 percent interest in the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli (ACG) fields in the Caspian Sea and also a 2.36 percent interest in the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil transportation pipeline company. [1]

However in early 2013 India's ONGC Videsh agreed to buy Hess' stake in the fields and pipeline for US $1 billion.[2]
