Azerbaijan, Baku, March 1 / Trend E.Ismayilov/
SOCAR exported about 476,740 tons from the port of Supsa in January-February compared to over 476,900 tons in January-February 2011, SOCAR said today.
About 161,500 tons of oil were exported from Supsa in February compared to 234,540 tons in February 2011, the statement said.
SOCAR exported 2.65 million tons of oil from Supsa in 2011 compared to 2.84 million tons in 2010.
Oil to Supsa is supplied via the Baku-Supsa oil pipeline.
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. However, 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.
