Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov 28 /Trend E.Ismayilov/
The Baku International Sea Trade Port transhipped 1.15 million tons of oil in January-October, compared to 1.4 million in the same period last year, a source in Baku port told Trend on Wednesday.
The decrease in oil cargo transshipment from Central Asia is associated with their redirection to the oil terminal located in the Sangachal settlement.
"Transshipment of oil cargo reduced by 18 percent during the first ten months," the source said.
In 2011 the port transhipped 1.74 million tons of oil cargo which is 13 per cent less than in 2010.
The Baku International Sea Trade Port transhipped 1.99 million tons of oil cargo in 2010 which is less by 21 per cent compared to 2009.
In 2009, Baku Port transhipped 2.5 million tons of oil cargo which is 10 per cent less than in 2008. In total, in 2009, the port transhipped 5.1 million tons of cargo.
