Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 5 / Trend E.Ismayilov/
SOCAR exported 2.65 million tons of oil from the Georgian port of Supsa in 2011 compared to 2.84 million tons in 2010, SOCAR reported on Thursday.
Oil to Supsa is supplied via Baku-Supsa oil pipeline.
According to the report, in December SOCAR exported about 161,700 tons of oil from Supsa.
In total, SOCAR exported 2.84 million tons of Azeri Light crude oil produced from "Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli" (ACG) fields via the Baku-Supsa in 2010 compared to 2.79 million tons in 2009.
The company did not transport oil in this direction in 2007 due to repairs on the pipeline, which launched in November 2006. The pipeline was filled with oil in mid. 2008. But the process was suspended because of the Georgian-Ossetian conflict. The oil transportation through the pipeline was restored in early November 2008.
BP is the operator of the Baku-Supsa pipeline.
