Azerbaijani oil company SOCAR is set to open a new oil refinery in Turkey's Aegean coastal city of Izmir on Friday, Turkey announced.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Azerbaijani counterpart Ilham Aliyev will attend the opening ceremony for the Star Refinery along with top officials from both sides, said the Presidential Press Office.
The project is reportedly one of the biggest investments in the private sector in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa in recent years.
