Bibiheybət (also, Bibi-Eybat, Bibiheibet, Bibi Eibat; formerly known as Xanlar, Euwbet, Helenendorf, Khanlar, and Shikhovo) is a municipality in Baku, Azerbaijan.[2] It has a population of 1,451.

In 2007, in connection with the expansion of Bibiheybat Motorway and the reconstruction of similarly named mosque, dozens of families were relocated to new and modern homes. In addition, a stadium, a kindergarten and other constructions were rebuilt. Around the newly reconstructed stadium, a recreation park was laid out to provide local community with mass cultural recreation.

The first modern offshore oil well in the world was drilled in Bibiheybat, in the year of 1846.[3][dubious ]
