CPC Corporate Governance Bodies Conducted Board and Shareholders Meetings

Extraordinary General Meetings of Caspian Pipeline Consortium-R and Caspian Pipeline Consortium-K Shareholders and Meeting of the Board of Directors of Caspian Pipeline Consortium-R were conducted in Batumi (Georgia) on September 26-27, 2017.
