The ACG fields have estimated recoverable reserves of about 5 to 6 billion barrels of petroleum. As of the end of 2005, the production rate from eight pre-drilled wells at the platform was approximately . Total production is expected to reach more than in 2007, and around one million barrels a day by 2009.

BP reports that crude oil from ACG is exported through the main pipeline Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Pipeline to the Mediterranean Sea and the Baku-Supsa Pipeline to Supsa in Georgia, as well as through the Baku-Novorossiysk Pipeline to Novorossiysk in Russia.
