The implementation of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan main export oil pipeline yielded positive results both in political and economic lives. We see the results today. Unless our initiative was string, the project would not be implemented, Trend cited the BP President, Lord John Brown, as stating in a solemn opening ceremony of the BTC with the capacity of 50 million tons a year at the Turkish port of Ceyhan.
According to Brown, in the initial phase the issues of security were actual and unless we saw a strong political support by all sides the project would hardly be realized and gave positive results.
We regard the project as a bold step, because it united many people and opened a way for bright future, he underlined.
