KazMorTransFlot National Maritime Shipping Company JSC of Kazakhstan ready to increase the volume of oil cargo transportation from the ports of Turkmenistan, if necessary, the company told Trend.
"Volumes will depend on the situation on the market, specific amounts are not yet known," the company said.
Previously, the company said that starting from January 2015, its tankers begin transporting oil cargo from the ports of Turkmenistan in Makhachkala (Russia) and Baku (Azerbaijan).
The company has already started transportation of oil cargo from the Turkmen port Alaja to Makhachkala, the company told Trend. The tankers of the company from Alaja haven't made cargo transportations to Baku yet.
Transportation of the oil cargo will be implemented by Almaty and Aktobe tankers. Turkmen ports will become the main loading points for the two mentioned tankers throughout 2015.
