Azerbaijan's Jan-Apr oil exports via Turkey pipeline fall 0.2 pct yr/yr
BAKU, May 16 (Reuters) - Azeri oil exports through the
Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) pipeline via Georgia and Turkey fell
by 0.2 percent to 10.861 million tonnes in the first four months
of this year versus the same period in 2017, state energy
company SOCAR said on Wednesday.
The BTC pipeline is used to export oil from the Azeri,
Chirag and Guneshli (ACG) oilfields operated by BP.
Export volumes through BTC declined to 27.5 million tonnes
in 2017 from 28.8 million tonnes in 2016.
Azerbaijan also exports oil via Russia, through the
Baku-Novorossiisk pipeline and via Georgia by rail and through
the Baku-Supsa pipeline.
Oil from Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Russia is also
exported through the BTC pipeline.
Azerbaijan's oil exports through all pipelines totalled
13.349 million tonnes in January-April this year.
