Accumulation of Transit Tanks in Georgia
Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend corr S. Aliyev / Many tanks with oil and oil products transited via Azerbaijan to the Georgian ports of Poty and Batumi and have accumulated in Georgia. As a result, shipping of tanks from the ports of Turkmenbashi ( Turkmenistan) and Aktau ( Kazakhstan) have decreased, according to the government.
"These problems should be resolved by the beginning of October," a source at the government said.
The Azerbaijan State Railway is capable of transporting over 20mln tons of oil and oil products a year. Carriages loaded with oil and oil products go from Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan via Azerbaijan to the Georgian ports of Poty and Batumi.
